Happy First Birthday (yesterday) Mac!!

As with everything lately I am running behind on getting this post up, at least it's only a day late?!!

Mac you are one now. I. can. not. believe it. You have grown and changed so much in the last 365 days that it doesn't seem humanly possible. You have gone from an immobile baby to a fantastically mobile toddler bursting with personality and attitude (wonder where you get that). I love every single thing about you. From your baby fine brown/blonde hair to your adorable (for now) temper tantrums.

You melt my heart in ways that I never knew possible. I can't describe the love I have for you and will never ever be able to express in a way that would do it justice... it would get lost in translation... there are just no words capable of describing it. But you are loved in the most enormous way that you could possibly imagine or comprehend, times infinity (and beyond) (ok sorry for the Buzz Lightyear, reference, I will let you watch Toy Story soon!).

You could start wars with your grin and end them with your hugs. You are so smart, fun, and have such a laid back air about you. It makes it that much more amazing that you have come so far in only one year. It's incredible, the growing process, and sad too. My baby is gone, turned toddler, but I am excited to see what you learn to do next, to hear your first word, see your next accomplishment.

This year you have learned to roll from side to side, crawl, walk, communicate in your own way and manipulate mom and dad! You are awesome. You are loved today. We will love you tomorrow. And for the rest of forever.

Happy Happy Birthday my Sweet Baby Boy,

Love Mom and Dad.
