My lovely boy!
My baby boy turned 3 today! As my heart recalls how it grew that day, my mind recalls the events as if it were yesterday.
We had a small get together with family and made some wonderful memories. We enjoyed a simple brunch on the front lawn followed with, of course, CAKE!
He has grown so much especially this past year. He has turned from a small child to a full on toddler! There are so many emotions that come in this season of my life, as my children grow, become more independent, and remind me that life is flying by. I have, of late, decided to make a consorted effort to slow down and enjoy these days. I know they will not last.
So, Mr. Finn, as of 11:57pm you arrived into our life. You made our family 4, and you changed our lives. Finn, the things I remember when you were born are so clear in my mind. I remember that moment that your Daddy looked at me and said, "It's a boy". I was so happy and so elated. Then they put you in my arms....tears rolled down my cheeks and I knew, at that very moment, that you had stolen a piece of my heart and I would never get that back. I knew that I had connected with you that very moment our eyes met....I knew that my life was forever changed by such a small little man. I knew that some day, unintentionally, you would break my heart. I knew...I just knew that you were our little Mr. Finn.
You have proved to me that all of these things are true and more. Not one day has gone by that has been uneventful. You have proven to be "all boy", as I say, and have not slowed down since the day you arrived. Finn, we love you.
