Happy Birthday Little One

While the date will say its Hendrixs birthday its VERY late on Friday evening :) I have just been busy doing stuff and realized its now my little boys 1st birthday. It took me until today to really believe it! and each time I say or it or write it down I want to cry :( not in a bad way or a regretful way, just because its soooo true when people say how fast it goes. I have seriously loved every single minute and from the over 100 clips of video and 1500 pictures I started to go through tonight I have great documentation of it all. Kent and I sat and watch some of the video as it loaded on my computer and it really is amazing all the memories we have captured. 

The last year hasn't been nearly as stressful, sleepless, worrisome or even as hard as I thought becoming a parent would be. Instead it has been full of Love, Fear (of anything happening to him), Laughter ( I noticed on the video tonight.. a lot of that!), and even heartbreak, I cant imagine him growing up and not needing me, but we have a long way to go til then! :) 

I am excited to share this weekend with my son (still sounds weird!) and my wonderful husband :) (apart from a wedding stint tomorrow for a few hours :) ) we will call that a long naptime.. so I dont feel like I have left him on his birthday! LOL We have a busy weekend and then a trip to the aquarium on Monday.

Now I just have to keep it together! :) 

Happy Birthday Little One!

I'm so sorry we couldn't make the party, but Happy Birthday Hendrix. I can't believe how big he is and that he's 1! He's SOOOO cute, I just love those big brown eyes.
