At 10:05 pm on January 24, 2008, Baby Man made his enterance into the world after over 24 hours of labour. He was nine days late, and clearly was a bit shy about making his grand appearance. But, the world has been made a happier, more loving place because of him.
This first year has sometimes been rough–feeding problems, skin issues, sleeping problems, temper tantrums, etc. But I wouldn’t trade away any of it for anything at all… mostly. 🙂
Thank you to all of the family and friends who stopped by today to help us celebrate. And thank you to those who weren’t able to make it but still passed on your birthday wishes. Each one of you will undoubtedly have a role to playing in helping Baby Man grow into a loving, responsible, respectful adult.
Your Mommy and Daddy love you very much, Baby Man. And while you are likely to have 80 or 100 more birthdays, none will be filled with more love or happiness than this one.
