I can't believe that you're already one! One! How time flies. I'm so scared that I might miss an amazing moment or milestone when I am asleep after a night long of work when you are up during the day.
I hope you're pretty much happy and content with the life we have for you right now. It may not be as glamorous as others, but we try to provide you with nothing but the best. That's why Mom is working those night hours!
You're such a happy baby except those times when you're being Mr. Cranky Pants like when you are teething or having 'growth spurts'.
I love it how you smile and giggle when you see yourself on a video. Even though you haven't exactly called me 'Mom/Mommy/Mama', I feel you calling for me when you say 'Dada' or 'Daddy'. I'm sure you want to say 'Mama' and 'Mommy' it's just a bit hard for you right now.
You've been wanting Mom next to you when you sleep lately. Thanks for making me feel that you love me so much! I can't ask for any other better feeling in the world. I pray that we continue to have a close relationship as you grow older.
I promise to teach you to be kind, patient, respectful, loving, loyal, compassionate, and most of all be God fearing and loving. I pray that I will be able to raise you in an environment where our family is closely-knit, where we are able to be honest and open.
Read our C-Section Birth Story here.
I hope that we can give you lots of siblings but Mom had a C-Section so that might be a little tough! But don't worry, Mom and Dad are here to be one of your bestest friends. Don't be afraid to come to us and ask questions.
We love you, Jacob!
Though we may not be the greatest example on being the best, we have learned through our years living that we have a lot of things to teach you about life, God, and how you can be the best that you can be.
I love you so much Jacob! You're the sweetest little boy in the world. Thanks for giving me lots of kisses! We have yet to practice hugs, but you're learning everyday.
I thank God every day that you were given to us. I thank Him that you are smart and a fast learner. For your age, you are already amazing everyone that knows you. I pray that you continue to be like that as you grow up and start school. We will guide you every step of the way.
Mom and Dad can't wait to make a lot more memories with you. Now if only I can get Dad to be vigilant about documenting every single one so we have more videos and pictures to show you!
Love you son! So so so much! Happy first year of life! :)
Always by your side,
