To my Marky-Mark on your first birthday,
We did it! One year down sweet boy.
You learned how good freedom tasted through crawling then walking then running and we learned to let you fly and always stand behind you incase you need us.
You've become feisty, always pushing your limits, but growing into such a brave soul and we've had to watch and accept how quickly the transformation from baby to boy really does happen right under our noses.
You sometimes cry for no reason, throw fits we can't control and push our buttons in ways we couldn't imagine before but you're teaching us the virtues of patience and forgiveness and grace and making us the best parents and people we can be.
You picked up eskimo kisses, flashing us your best smiles and waving with all your might and we fall even more in love with you, astonished at how much our hearts grow for you.
I love each and every part of you, Mark, and cherish you more than you will ever know.
Happy Birthday my boy!
