A Year in the Life of Pooh....

I should have posted this last week...on his actual birthday.....but the procrastinator that I am....decided to wait until today....and that was after much prodding....and whining about how slow I am....





Better Late than Never.....(whoever said that....you have made me who I am today...and I'm not sure I should thank you for it.)




To You Pooh....



Yet another small note from me....the president of your fan club....



I truly can't believe a year has gone by already.....365 days full of nothing but joy and happiness....and coffee....lots and lots of coffee.....



this last week....I really wanted to go and have a chat with father time...and tell him to just slow it down a bit....not let the next year go by as fast as the last...how even now...I sometimes forget exactly the way you smelled when you first came home from the hospital....



Or just how long I would sit and watch you sleep....or how excited I was the first time you smiled...or tried to lift your head....



Those thousands of little...minisucle milestones....that seem so large when they happen....get smaller and smaller as the days go on.....



It's so hard....to look so forward to the fabulous.......exciting things that you will continue to learn and do.....yet so yearn so hard for you to stay little....and just the way you are now....



I don't think I could ever spend enough time....or take enough pictures....to quench my thirst of you....



You have and will continue to be the light of my life.....and you have proven....to be that...as you have made a difficult time....so much easier to bare....



I wanted nothing more this last week....than to truly celebrate you....for the wonderful baby you have been....and the amazing...beautiful little person you are growing into everyday....



and know your daddy and I will celebrate you not just on your birthday...but everyday....



you deserve nothing less....



Love

Your mommy

They do grow too fast... my girl is about to be two in May and I am beside myself with wonder at how we got here so quickly.

What a beautiful post. Can you ask Father Time to come by me as well. All my girls are growing up way to fast.

Thanks for your kind words and support. I really appreciate it.

Aww, how beautiful. My youngest of three is turning three in just a few weeks and it makes me sad to think that I officially have no more babies in my house. :(
(I said that last year but I tried to stretch it out one more year...)

PS Love your blog!

This is just beautiful, and I can relate to every single word of it. My little guy is turning two in a few months, the second year, if it's possible, goes even FASTER (maybe because they do!)

I read a little further down, and I'm sorry for your recent loss. I went through the same thing prior to my son, and it was incredibly difficult to get through. Here's hoping you have all the support and strength to get through it.

Thanks for popping by earlier, too!

I wish I could stop the clock too. It all goes by so fast, but every new age is a whole new adventure and I am really enjoying it all.

Such a sweet letter to your adorable little man. Every time my kids have a birthday I am always reminded of this quote about parenting...The days are long but the years are short!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
