my boy

My Sweet Grayson,

Tomorrow you will turn into a big 1 year old! It is hard for me to believe that at this time last year I was anxiously awaiting your arrival in the hospital. I couldn't wait to see how big you were, who you looked like, and what kind of personality you had.  I was smitten from the moment I laid eyes on you. You were perfect. Ever since I was a little girl, all I had dreamed about was becoming a mom. Baby boy, you made my dream come true! I am so proud to call you my son. I am so thankful that God chose me to be your mama. 

This past year has been the most exciting one yet. I have loved watching you grow & learn new things. I have loved seeing you change from a sleepy newborn to a little boy with loads of personality!

Grayson, you have taught me so much in just 1 year. I have learned so much about myself since you have been here. I have a whole new level of patience that did not exist before & you have shown me a whole new kind of love. The kind of love that changes a person. The kind of love that makes this mama feel complete.

I am so excited to watch you change and grow. I can't wait to hear you really start talking. I can't wait to see you become a big brother. I can't wait to watch you learn new things. You are brave, determined, and have such a strong will.   I pray for you every single day. I pray that God will use all of your strong character traits to do something wonderful in life. I pray that you will one day understand what it means to have a relationship with Jesus and you will desire that for your own life. I know that God has big plans for you!

Your sweet smile & laugh have brought so much joy to our lives this year. Everyone we pass in the store always comments on your big, smily blue eyes. Grayson, you have filled a void in my heart that I didn't even know was missing.

G, I hope you always know just how much me & your daddy love you. You are our world, baby boy!

Love, Mama

What a blessing you are to your dad and me!!! I am not surprised you are a great mother but am so proud of the way you "mother" Grayson. You have such good common sense and allow him the space he needs to grow as a little boy. He is very fortunate God chose you to be his mother and vice versa :)
