It is so incredibly hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that it has already been a whole year. In some ways, I feel like we have known you forever…but in others it feels like we have just met.
You have taught me so much in the past fifty two weeks.
You have taught me patience. Oh my goodness, have you taught me patience. You have taught me to find joy in the small things. I watch you look around and smile at the simplest stuff…and it reminds me to do the same.
The most important thing you have taught me over the past year is unconditional love. You will grin and wave at everyone…even if they never look your way. You will offer your toys to complete strangers and never expect anything in return. You have such an innocent soul, my sweet baby Grey, and I hope no one ever takes that innocence from you.
I’m sure you can tell that we are so madly in love with you. We love you so much it hurts. Bringing you into our lives has strengthened our relationship and made our love stronger, too. We constantly find ourselves asking, “What was life before Grey?”. Life before you wasn’t near as amazing as it is now, that’s for sure.
Grey Alexander Nile,
“I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
as long as I’m living,
my baby you’ll be.”
Happy First Birthday, little man!
We love you SO much!!!
