Can you believe that I made this?! I'm so proud.
The boy requested a blue cake, so that's what he got!
Samuel has "CHEESE" down pat! What a goober.
Can it be possible that three full years have gone by since I had our first miracle? It has been three years since the very first time I gazed into your eyes, watched you fall asleep, stay up for hours listening to you breath, saw that beautiful first smile, you grasped my finger in your little precious hand, longed for my protective embrace somehow knowing that I was your mommy and how you needed me so, giggle, wiggle your toes, eat your toes :o), coo? Can it really be? Now you are running free, hitting overhanded tossed baseballs, swinging, going down slides, coloring, jumping, putting your sandals on the right feet without the help of mommy or daddy and soon you'll be off to school, off to college, off with the woman you chose to love for the rest of your life. My my. Without being a mother I would never know what it was like to feel my heart overflowith. I can guide you, protect you. laugh with you, cry with you, be angry with you and love you the best that I can know how. Samuel. You are mommy and daddy's very first miracle and that is all yours, no one can ever take that. You were the beginning of our marriage! You are forever special just because you are you! We love you!
Dear First Born
"I've always loved you best because you were our first miracle. You were the genesis of a marriage and the fulfillment of young love.
You sustained us through the hamburger years, the first apartment (furnished in early poverty), our first mode of transportation, and the TV we paid on for 36 months.
You were new, had unused grandparents, and enough clothes for a set of triplets. You were the original model for a Mom and a Dad who were trying to work the bugs out. You got the strained lamb, the open safety pins, and the three-hour naps.
You were the beginning."
