One already?

Today marks a very special day! It's my little "I"'s first birthday! I just had to share some of the pictures from the last year with you all...he has changed so much!

I remembered this day so well. We were living in Jersey and I was just about to head out the door for work when my sister called to tell me the news. I must confess....that I was hoping for a girl and had guessed that it would be a girl so I was VERY surprised when she said...It's a BOY! WHAT? I couldn't believe it! It didn't take me long to get excited to meet the little guy and spoil him rotten with all kinds of clothes and toys! I remember looking on the internet that morning for gifts for him!

I remember thinking oh how I wish I lived closer and I remember crying to the hubby and God after my first visit to see him and my sister and asking for a way to move back to the midwest to be near them! God heard my prayers and he answered them in a short time!

I would not have traded this past year for anything! Watching him grow into the little boy is absolutely amazing and I am so thankful and blessed! I LOVE being his Auntie D. I wouldn't trade it for the world . He has brought so much joy and laughter into our family. I look forward to many more years of celebrating his birthdays and I look forward to the day when he says my name! Happy Birthday Little "I"! Auntie D and Uncle M love you so much!

Daddy, Mommy, and Little "I"...

Wasn't he precious!

I think this picture must be my favorite one that I received before meeting him.

Wrapped in Great Grandma's quilt. She would have loved him so much!

Feb- My first visit to meet the little guy and he rested on my lap so well!

Taken in March right after we moved back. He came to help us move in!
