A letter to my one year old

I'm currently sitting on my couch, just finished decorating some cloud decorations, and watch the NBA Finals, and all I can think about is how my little Mason is turning one years old in two days....TWO DAYS! It honestly gets my emotional just thinking about it. It's mixed emotions really, both happy and not exactly sad but missing him being a newborn and so little. I decided to create a little letter for mason so here it goes!

Dear my little Mason,

You've changed mommies life so much its hard to put in words but here it goes. I love you so much, you've showed me a new definition of love. A selfless love and a love that never ends but keeps growing. You've strengthen me in many ways. You've made me such a blessed and proud mother, even though your turning one this weekend, you've made me a proud mother and shown me to appreciate the little things in life and to always be grateful.

I remember your first little butterfly kicks you gave me when you were in mommas belly and the excitement I kept gaining every time I heard your heart beat or saw you on the ultrasound monitor. I remember your first smile and how you would look up at me and knew instantly the love we shared. I remember your first coo and  how you would with your little toes to scoot and try your best to crawl. I remember when you sat up for the first time and even your first little tooth, how you were in such discomfort and how I held you so tight and gave you all the kisses to help distract the little pain you were feeling from teething. Remember how you said mom for your first time and I jumped with joy that, that was your first word. I remember the silly face you made with confusion yet liking to when you had your first taste of baby food. How you felt asleep in my arms, so peaceful and melted my heart.

Since you were little I knew the personality and person you were going to be. You were going to be someone to change lives, not only to me and your dad, but to your family, friends, but to the world! Your smile says it all, it truly does mason. I don't think we've gone on one trip or grocery run where you haven't not smiled at someone and engage in attention with someone, instantly making them smile. I remember when we were on our flight to California and you were 5 months old and you kept smiling and making eye attention to the flight attendant. How me and her engaged in conversation about you and how you kept smiling and her telling me, she hasn't had someone smile to her the way you did in a while. That's just it mason, you are going to change lives. You have so much happiness and I hope you continue to find happiness. I hope you always strive and never give up. 
Lastly your dad and I are beyond blessed to call you our son. Thank you for choosing us. Thank you for always keeping us on our toes and always making us smile or laugh. This year may have flown by but we are tremendously excited to see what this next year has in store for you, to see you grow and to create more beautiful memories with you! The days may be long, but the years are short so I will continue to remember and hold onto you being this little and enjoy every single second. Happy almost birthday my Mason! I love you forever and ever and will always love you!
Your mommy
