1 Year Ago Today

Happy Birthday my sweet boy!
Connor-

Today you are one year old.  I cannot tell you enough how much joy and love you have brought into our lives this past year.  It's been so exciting every day watching you grow and learn something new and seeing the world through your eyes.  It's definitely been the most challenging year we've ever had, but we wouldn't change it for the world.  Every day is a new adventure and I never knew I could feel such love in my heart. We love you to the moon and back!

Love,

Mommy

We finally were blessed with you!

All that wishing & waiting was so worth it!
Right before you entered the world

Aww! Happy Birthday sweet Connor! He is so adorable! This was such a great post for me because I started reading your blog after Connor was born so it was kinda cool to have a summary of things and catch up a little through pictures! I hope you and your family have a fantastic weekend!
