My handsome lil Gbear,
There are no words that can accurately describe the love I have for you and how happy I am to have you in my life. You bring joy to your daddy and I constantly and I can’t believe that a year ago I was in the back of an ambulance giving birth to you (Way to make an entrance!). I’m sure that is just a taste of the excitement we have to look forward to with you as our son. So on your birthday, I want to thank you for bringing the sunshine into our lives, even when some of the days seemed cloudy.
In honor of your 12 months, 12 things I love about you. (Although this list could be unending, I’ll stick with 12 haha)
I love opening the door to your room in the mornings to your smiling face, standing in your crib waiting for me to come give you loving.
I love when you fall asleep on my chest and snuggle (although those times are rarer now since you love to explore)
I love your giggle, especially when we tickle you. Or you bop your daddy on the head with something. (I think it’s pretty funny too ;)
I love your chubby little thighs. And your beautiful blue eyes.
I love when you flirt with people when we’re out. You act bashful and then light up the room with your smile.
I love when you try and stick a toy in my mouth and laugh and laugh and laugh (even if it just falls to the ground)
I love your sense of adventure~ you love to explore new places~ but I love even more when you look over your shoulder for me as you crawl to your next adventure.
I love your newfound obsession with spoons. Who needs fancy toys when you have a plastic spoon?
I love your yummy food dance.
I love watching you learn new skills. You are so close to walking, but just not ready to let go (and neither am I!) And now you're blowing raspberries, so cute!
I love when you crawl over me and explore my face, putting your chubby little baby hand on my nose, my mouth, my ears, just giggling all the while.
I love bath time. You love to be in the bath so much and I love seeing you so happy.
Thank you for bringing such happiness to my life. You kept me going while your daddy was deployed and now that he’s back home you make our little family so happy. I love you always and forever! Happy Birthday Lil Gbear....quit growing so fast! ;)
Love, Mama Bear
*I scheduled this post so that it would coincide with when he was born ;) Daddy, Lil Gbear and I are celebrating at Daddy's work Christmas party
