My Sweet Baby Punkin's Birthday!

Today is the day.
We've all been waiting for it.
And now that it's here...I kinda wish it wasn't.  :/
But..moving forward I am so HAPPY & BLESSED to have such a fun loving, sweet, caring, cuddly, HEALTHY, hilarious, handsome...did I say sweet?, all boy, little boy!
It's hard to believe that it's actually been a whole year.
I never knew I could love someONE so much.
Parents out there...you know.   Not a parent yet?--one day, you'll KNOW.
I joke & say I don't want him to grow up, I want him to be "my" baby forever.
I want him to be sweet forever.
I want him to be moma's boy FOREVER.
But...he has to grow up.
I say every month, he gets to be more fun, and that's what I have to keep telling myself.
This whole "one year old" thing isn't bad.
It only gets better!
That day doesn't seem that long ago.
I remember how ready I was.
I remember how ready I was to meet this sweet little boy.
I remember how ready I was to take him home & take care of him.
I remember the "I'm about to meet my son" feeling.
I would totally relive that day if I could.
I don't remember ALL the details & I wish I did.
I wish I could relive it, and soak in even more than before!
We've come so far in 12 months.
From newborn clothes till he was 3 months old, to wearing 18 months before he was 12 months old.
From nursing, to bottle, to sippy cup.
From laying down to running around!
I love the way he loves his mama.
I wish he knew how much I loved him.
He will one day.
When he has kids of his own.
I didn't know how much my parents loved me, until a year ago today.
There are no words to describe the feeling.
My crazy boy can get a lil pissy.
Believe it or not, he still does his hands like that when something doesn't go his way. :P
Sometimes I still find it hard to believe that HE.IS.MINE. 
He grew inside of me for 9 (10) months.
I am responsible for him.
I am his caretaker, his provider.
He relies on me for every.thing.
I love doing that & being that for him.
There's nothing I wouldn't ever do for my sweet boy.
& he loves his daddy.
I can officially say his third word is "da-da".
He started that this week, and has put two and two together, and says it when we are talking to daddy on the phone.
He lights up when he's in the room.
He has his arms.  His legs.  
Button down shirt sleeves are too short, and jeans are flood waters.
Thanks to daddy.  :P
Where our child got blonde hair...?  We don't know.
I'm scared of the adventures these 2 are going to have together.
But it will be nothing but a blast for my Punkin.

I love you so much and can't believe your a year old!  Times flies when your fixen bottles, having to schedule a shower, changing gag-worthy diapers, doing loads of laundry, forgetting to eat, & chasing you around the house!  This past year has been so much fun with you!  I never knew someone could bring so much JOY to my life.  I look forward to you growing up to be a bright, Godly young man, and hopefully always being moma's boy!  :P  You already make me so proud!  =)
