at various times today, i have reflected on where i was just two short years ago.
checking into triage and the realization that we were going to be leaving the hospital holding my little.
sometime before 9am
sharing the awesome experience with my momma.
really feeling the effects of induction. focusing on the prize...
somehow you started as this...
and you grew to this:
and by the grace of God, i have been able to be there every step of the way. i love you more than words can say. my heart beats for you. you are so so smart and honestly the funniest kid i know. i love watching you learn new things and take in the world with your big, wonderful, curious eyes. your personality is the best. your laugh warms my heart. i didn't know a love like this could exist. and you are shaping into a wonderful little boy. let's take toddlerhood by storm, yea?
happy birthday to my austin chub.
