Happy 1st Birthday Caspian Finn

Dear Caspian,

Today you are 1 year old.  I can’t believe it!  Your first year flew by at warp speed.  It seems like only yesterday you came into our lives, but yet I can’t imagine our life without you.

Caspian, on your 1st birthday today there are a few things I would like to remember about you……

1. Your favorite food is bananas.
2. You are so sweet. And I mean SO sweet.
3. You army crawl everywhere.
4. You say ‘Dada’ and ‘Mama’.
5. You have just learned how to shake your head ‘no’.
6. Your sisters love you and tell you that there is ‘No better baby than Caspian’.
7. Your giggle is just about the best sound I have ever heard.
8. You love to smile.  Your Gigi and Grumpy call you ‘Smiley Joe’.
9. You are so happy.
10. You are a dream baby.  So even tempered and delightful.
11. You like feet and shoes.
12. You have the most adorable chubby thighs.
13. You like to eat. A lot.
14. You like when mama sings to you especially ‘Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man of Mine’ from Show Boat.
15. You like to dance.
16. You love water and going swimming.
17. You like cars.
18. You love your mama, but as of lately you REALLY love your daddy.
19. You are very ‘go with the flow’. {Thank you for that!}.
20. You bring such a completeness, joy and happiness to our family.

Before you were born, many of my friends told me that there was something different about the relationship between and mother and a son.  I never really thought there was much to that, until I had you.  I absolutely love my girls, but our relationship is just different.  I can’t put my finger on it, but all I know is that you are my sweet little boy and I can’t imagine you any other way.  What a light you have brought into our lives.  Thank you for being such a joyful, wonderful, lovable child.

Happy 1st Birthday!
I love you from here to the moon and back again my sweet, sweet Caspian Finn.
