Everett's 1st Birthday Letter

Dear Everett,

It's so hard to believe that one year ago today your dad and I had just welcomed you into the world and were enjoying each and every moment with you.With your first breath you took our breaths away and changed our lives forever. I'll never, ever forget the moment when my water broke while standing in line at Hershey's Chocolate World and racing to the hospital. I'll always remember hearing your dad say as it came closer and closer to the time where you were finally going to come that the sun was coming up. And the moment your little body was laid on me and I saw you for the very first time will forever stand out as one of the greatest moments of my life.

I don't think that your Dad and I will ever be able to express just how much we love you. The love that we both felt when we laid eyes on you for the first time was incredibly overwhelming and each day we have been blessed to have with you, that same love grows and grows. Your little personality has really started to come out and you are coming into your own. Over the months as you head into toddler hood your curiosity and spunk keep us busy and laughing. You're quite the little ham, always laughing and teasing. You're an affectionate little boy who loves to snuggle up to those you love and who love you. And when you choose to give your winning smile you make people's day.

You're very determined and love to explore but also like to make sure that your Dad or I are nearby. You look for our support and when you realize you have it you are willing to give new things a try. You love to be with us wherever we are and follow us around from room to room. You're spunky; you know what you want and have no problem letting us know what that is even though you are not speaking words just yet. You find ways to get your little message across. You love to make us laugh and your non-stop baby chatter, singing and expressions certainly do that! You are our little ray of sunshine, you light up our lives and we love you so very much.

We are so thankful that God gave you to us and we feel so very blessed to be your mom and dad. We don't always know what to do or what the right thing is in raising you and you are only a year old but I hope you never have any doubts that we are your biggest fans and no matter what, we will never, ever stop loving you. You are our pride and joy and our biggest blessing. We love you little man and look forward to all the precious moments we will have with you in the years ahead!

Dad & Mom
