Happy Birthday Vince!

Words cannot begin to express the emotions I am feeling on the eve of your first birthday! You fill my life with such joy and laughter and love that I am daily surprised that my heart has not exploded. Where has the past year gone? It is so cliche, but the truth- it feels like it was only yesterday that we were bringing you home from the hospital. In the past year we have had our ups and downs, but we have pushed through the colic and sleepless nights. Being your mami has only made me a better woman. You have made me find a strength I did not know I possessed. I love the way you rev your hands up when you get excited. I love the ease in which you can laugh so hard you cry at the simplest things like the word "perro". I love how you look up to your older brother, how you laugh at his "jokes". I love to hear you "talk" and share your thoughts with me. You are a daring soul who loves to explore your surroundings. Your favorite place is in my arms, which brings me joy and pain seeing as you are a BIG boy! You love green beans, sand (yeah this one I still don't understand), snuggling, and playing in/with water. I look forward to seeing all the amazing things you will learn and do this year, but please don't grow up too fast! Thank you for coming into my life and being my son. I love you.

holding you on the day you were born
little parts
you did have brown hair... where it went I don't know
Your face has changed so much
yeah I love your little feet
and that smile!
yeah we had these moments too, but....
these out numbered them!

studying your surroundings

my water baby

speed, I am speed!
I will miss these moments

see, not really Brown eyes
I carry you in my heart
melt my heart

Checking In

As reported in an earlier post, Eddie has been relocated to FL for at least 3 months. The boys and I spent 2 weeks sans daddy and were ecstatic to be reunited with him in FL. While in FL, I am computerless during the day... Hence the "silence". We(the boys and I) have a handful of days left in FL before we start our 16hrs in 3 day drive back home for a month. Look forward to pictures then.
