An Entire Year With You

Baby Boy,

We've had an entire year with you earthside now! How quickly this year has gone by. A year ago today, this day of your birth, I was extremely exhausted as we welcomed you to our family. At 9:38am on Sunday, April 21, 2013 we saw and touched you for the first time ever!

Today, as I type about those moments, I realize that I did know how to show you love. I was showing you love simply by doing what I knew best to do. I was showing you love by respecting your need above my own need for rest. I was showing you love by helping you stay warm as your body became accustomed to earthside air. All those things I did in those first moments, though not knowing exactly how to do them, were demonstrations of love.
