Happy 1st Birthday

A year ago today, at this exact time, Felipe joined our family.

Dear Felipe,
It's been a year of happiness not only for daddy and me but also for all those that have gotten to know you.

For the past week all your daddy and I can say is "Can you believe it's been a year?". Although it seems like time has flown by, we can definitely say that we have enjoyed every minute that we have been with you.

Today you are turnig one and you have taken us on a roller coaster ride like no other.

I never imagined all the happiness you would bring us. Together we've experienced: baby kicks, ultrasounds, heartburn, breastfeeding, burping, throw-ups, long sleepless night, co-sleeping, exhaustion, diaper changes, explosive poops, constipation, getting pooped on the hand, baths, first bath, First Halloween, First Thanksgiving, First Christmas, Your Baptism, First New Year's, First Valentine's Day, First St Patty's Day, First Easter, First 4th of July, pumping milk at work, leaving to work in the mornings while you are crying for me, booger bubbles, gases, colics, cradle cap, long nails, fussiness, scratches, SIDS obsessions, bottom teeth, homemade baby food, lots of pictures, First time at a movies, First trip to the zoo, First car trip, First time at the beach, First time in the ocean, laughs, bumps, bruises, scratches, first haircut, standing in the crib, top teeth, biting, drooling, slobbery kisses, rolling over, sitting up, crawling, pulling up, standing, face landings, sleeping through the night, tantrums, giggles, mama, dada, saliva bubbles, rocking you to sleep, singing you to sleep, multiple pediatrician appointments, clapping, peekaboo, screaming, squeals of delight, tickles, waving bye-bye, first dip in the pool, Mother's day, Father's Day ... and your first birthday!

Wow, my precious, it must have been an exhausting year for you.

Happy 1st Birthday Felipe!!!

I love you my prince and with every day that passes, I love you even more. I'm looking forward to the next year of "adventures" with you.
