To My Darling Boy on Your First Birthday

Sweetest Little Ricky,

A year ago you were placed in my arms for the first time. I didn't know a lot, but I did know this--my life would never be the same.

This year has been such a whirlwind of firsts for you, me and your Daddy. First breastfeeding, first diaper change, first airplane ride, first time sitting up on your own and crawling, first time sleeping through the night (thank God!), first solid food, first ice cream (that was a good day, huh?)--every day seemed to bring some new adventure.

But the biggest first for me was how much I loved you. From the moment I knew we were going to have you I loved you more than I thought possible. Then I held you for the first time and I loved you even more. Then I woke up the next morning and loved you more. And the next day even more and so on and so on.

And here we are 365 days later and I continue to love you more than I could have ever dreamed. And every day it is bigger and more.

When I met your Daddy I felt a love I had never known and my heart grew in ways I could never have imagined. And now you have brought us a new love and our hearts continue to grow.

Some day we'll tell you a little bit about how we didn't think we were ever going to get a baby and what a lovely surprise you were, but for now I'll just tell you this--You were more than worth the wait.

As I sing to you every night at bedtime, "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray." I am looking forward to more sunny days with you, my darling boy.

Happy 1st birthday. What an amazing year it has been.

I love you always, sunshine boy.

Mommy
