Happy 1st Birthday Sawyer

Sawyer,
Where has the last year gone little man? I cannot believe that this day last year was the first time I held you in my arms. What an amazing moment that was. A moment that made me whole, made me complete, in a way...healed me. I remember delivering you like it was yesterday. Things didn't go how I envisioned but everything ended up perfect.

Watching you grow and become the little person you are today has been miraculous. You are such an amazing little guy. It breaks my heart to think of how fast it has gone and will continue to go. That's the crazy thing about life...when things aren't so great it feels like it drags on and on. Once you have the life you want, the life you have always dreamed about it flies by far faster than you can handle. Please believe this when people tell you; it will seem annoying but it is the truth. I would give anything to put life in slow motion. I am beyond thankful to be able to stay home with you and soak up every moment. Every laugh, every dimpled smile, every clap, every new accomplishment. You are days away from walking though we have been saying that for a week or 2 now. You have taken a step here or there when you aren't paying attention. You walk around holding onto everything and only crawl when you absolutely have to. Once you get over the fear you are going to bolt into a run. You still aren't eating food very well but every day you get a little better. You love cheerios and watermelon. You got in 4 new teeth in the last week! Yes, FOUR!! You now have 8 teeth all in front and 2 top molars and your 2 bottom ones working their way in. You are stubborn and have a terrible temper.  Oh and you weigh a whopping 24.10 pounds!  You definitely take after your daddy in that department.  You love your sister almost more than anyone. You think she is about the coolest thing ever and follow her everywhere. She makes you laugh so hard. I love watching the two of you together.
You bring so much happiness and joy into this house. You are the most perfect little boy in the world. I hope our years just keep getting better and better...and go by just a little slower. Momma loves you more than life. Know that you are so loved by so many people. Happy 1st Birthday baby boy.
