Every year when I do my kiddos birthday posts I get so emotional. It's like a tradition for me to sit at my computer looking through photos with a good playlist on and tears streaming down my face. Looking back through photos, laughing and crying through the memories.
This has been such a big beautiful year of growth for our sweet Aiden. I can see just how much change has happened and it's truly incredible.
It's always really hard for me letting go for parts of it. Or maybe all of the letting go is hard? it's one of the pieces of motherhood I never expected before I began to experience it, the never ending battle of trusting God with our babies lives, and for all the letting go.
I try with all my might to embrace and capture and cherish every moment, yet I still feel like they are rapidly slipping through my fingertips. I can't believe it has been seven years. SEVEN. Seven years ago I met you for the first time and my heart has never been the same. I laid eyes on you and that moment you took my heart and it is forever yours. I knew I would love being a mom, but I had no idea how much. I had no idea my heart was capable of loving the way it does now. I didn't realize the intensity of it all. You have changed me, helped me and rocked my world in the best way possible. I can never ever thank you for what you have given me.
We love everything about you Aiden. We love your precious, tender heart. We love your creativity. We love how your spirit is sensitive, and how you love big.
As long as I can remember I have wanted to be a mom. And on March 22 that dream came true for the first time. I love you with all my heart & soul sweet boy. Thank you for being more than a dream come true.
You are everything my love.
