Happy Birthday Carterbug!

Yesterday was a perfect day.  We had tornado warnings and the power was out one street over, but despite the weather scare everyone showed up to show their love for Carter.  It stopped raining and the sun was shining an hour into his party, which was fantastic!  I am 100% sure that my little boy is the most loved little boy ever.  We are so thankful for all of the many friends and family members we have in our life that love our little boy!  Pictures speak louder than words for a first birthday............................

I can't believe I have a 1 year old!!!!!!  I found myself all day yesterday saying this time last year this was happening (ok I did that alot).  It just really feels like it just happened yesterday.  I started having contractions the night before through the whole afternoon the next day.  I remember pushing and I remember seeing that beautiful little face for the first time.  He took my breath away, knowing that he was my little boy was such an amazing feeling.  I remember the way he smelled and I remember what it felt like to hold him for the very first time...nothing like it!  I remember this feeling of accomplishment, a dream of having a perfect little boy in my arms had finally came true!  I remember not caring about a silly diagnosis but just about caring for this precious angel.  He was mine, all mine and boy does he make me happy!  What a wonderful year it has been little boy, you continue to make me proud.  I love you with everything in me and can't wait to see what this next year has in store for you!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARTERBUG!!!!!!!!!!

The time has come!

The house is quiet, everyone asleep but me!  I am getting the house ready for 40 people.  Were going to pack everyone inside our quaint little home considering it is supposed to rain all day Saturday!  We will all be celebrating Carter's first birthday.  I can't believe it...already.  I must say I have mixed emotions about the whole thing.  On one hand I am so excited for our closest family and friends to be all together to celebrate my little boy, but on the other hand all I can think about is where did the time go?  Him growing up before my very eyes is exciting and heart wrenching all at the same time!  Tomorrow is the last day I can say I have an 11 month old from now on I will be saying I have a 1 year old!  Everyone say a prayer that the rain will hold off and mommy makes it through the day without smearing my mascara!
