Happy 1st Birthday, Eli!

Dear Eli,

Today you turn a year old and I find myself wondering where the past year has gone. You have been such a joy and a delight. You have brought so much joy to our world and I can't imagine our lives without you in it. We are so thankful that God blessed our lives with you. Being a Mommy to you is the greatest thing I have ever done. I feel so complete and my life feels so full now. Your Daddy and I have loved watching you grow and change this past year. You are so full of life. You make us smile. You bring us so much joy, too much for words to say!

Sweet baby, I can't wait to see all the great things God has in store for you. Your Daddy and I pray that you will one day come to know Jesus and ask him in your heart. We have given you to him and we trust that He is going to guide you and do great things in your life and through your life! We have had so much fun this first year. We can't wait to see what is in store for this next year and the years to come!

Eli, I can't believe that a year has passed, but I am so thankful for all the wonderful memories you have given me this year-your first smile, your first coo, the first time you slept through the night, your first Christmas, my first Mother's Day, your Daddy's first Father's Day, your dedication day, the first time you crawled, the first time you laughed, your first steps, your first word, and so many more. I have tried my hardest to hold on to each day and make each and every day with you special and I will continue to do so. I love you, my sweet, baby boy and I am so happy for you! I hope that you have the best first birthday ever!

Enjoy today and tomorrow, mommy! So many special memories from these two days. I wish I was there to watch you beam. We shed many tears together in hopes of God blessing us with precious babies and now that they are here, all I can do is thank Him. For mine...and yours!

Have a great party. I love you Manna!
