You’re one today! Though it’s cliche, the year really has flown, and yet some parts were very long. I thank God that we made it through without major surgery. You are amazing, and I can’t imagine life without you. You came into this world in a whirlwind labour, and you’ve kept us on our toes ever since. You’ve taught me so much and shown me how I can stretch and adapt and sacrifice more. Despite the health issues, you’re the happiest baby I’ve known. Your laugh and smile are infectious. Your love for your siblings is so sweet. Your determination and stubbornness get you where you want to go. I love you, mon petit lion, and I can’t wait to see how your second year goes.
