Grant- One Year Old

Dear Grant,
Today you are a year old.  I know it's cliche but, time really does fly.  It has been the hardest year at times but also the best because Heavenly Father blessed me with you.  You have made me so happy and have shown me what a blessing it is to be a mother and specifically your mother.   I love relearning all the little things that bring happiness through your eyes.  I love to see you get excited when you see a basketball and how badly you want another bite of ice cream after the first.  I love how you stop whatever you are doing and crawl as fast as you can to the door when Daddy comes home at the end of the day.  I love how you hug me tight with your little arms. I love the way you smack your lips when you're hungry.  I love the way you babble and throw in a "mamama" and "dadada".  I love the way you crawl in the grass with your bottom high up in the air.  I love how when you get tired you lay your head down on the floor and hum.  I love your smile and I love your eyes.  Most of all I love how you love me and how you let me love you. 
Thank you Grant for having me as your mother and for being my little boy.


  1. Happy Birthday Granty-pants!!!
    Love, Aunt Amy

  2. Such a sweet memoir! And I just put his card in the mail- I've been horrible on timing this whole year... sorry it had to happen with Grant's first!
