Happy 1st Birthday! | Julie Marie Portraits

My baby boy is 1 today, and I can hardly write this post because my eyes are filling up with tears.  Is it normal to be this emotional on my little guy's 1st birthday? My friend, Jess, said yes it is...she was the same with hers, so i feel better now after I told her I had been crying every night for the past week thinking about him turning 1!

I just can't believe that 365 days have went by so quickly.  I remember my dad always saying when I was younger that time goes by faster the older we get....well, he is so true about that.  However, I would like to slow it down just a little bit if I could!

April 1st, 2010..... a day I will never forget!  Jake was born at 2:45 AM, and he was absolutely perfect.  My love for him was immediate.  I couldn't take my eyes off of him and kept thinking I can't believe he's mine.

And fast forward to today.  I still can't believe he's mine.  I sneak into his nursery usually a couple of nights each week and pick him up out of his crib just to rock him, and I can't help but think that I'm just the luckiest person in the world to have him.  He has truly blessed my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined.  He's just simply the best!   And my favorite thing to say to him each night before bed....."I love you through and through...yesterday, today and tomorrow, too"!  Happy 1st Birthday, Jake Martin!

Awe! Happy Birthday Jake!

(I'll have the tears to share with you in just a few days - Joss will be 1 on the 13th)

It is simply INSANE how quickly this year has passed. INSANE. And I think only a mom (maybe a dad too) can understand the speed of one little year...

Thanks, Jen! He's so lucky to have his Aunt Jeje!
Thanks, Sarah! Just wait. I was a mess until his birthday. We had so much fun celebrating that it made the sadness go away! Can't wait to hear about your little girl's birthday party!....esp can't wait to see the crayons! :)
