Dear Grayson Michael,
I cannot come to terms that it has been a year since you came into this world. On May 4, 2015 at 3:11 am, weighing 7 lbs. 11 oz, and 23 inches long. Making an early entrance because you just wanted to be here with everyone that soon. I cannot even explain the joy, happiness, and sense of accomplishment I felt this day! You were absolutely perfect, that’s the only way I know how to describe how you looked. Perfect! You did not even look like a newborn baby, you were just perfect my son. Every minute since your birth, I’ve grown deeper in love with you. I’ve always said this and I will always say it, “I have loved you even before I knew you were in mommy’s tummy”. The second I heard, “You’re Pregnant”, I was shocked with excitement. You, my son, are a miracle from God! The moment they placed you straight on my chest the first thing I noticed, and will never forget, was the feel of your skin. It may not seem like something that important or meaningful, but that’s what got me. That pale white, slimy, and warm skin against my skin. The feeling I felt when I just kept kissing you over and over on your forehead and saying, “I waited so long for you and for this”, and repeatedly saying it and crying! Best feeling in the world! Now, when I try kissing you on your forehead your little hand pushes me away cause your trying to get away to explore this world! But, no matter what, when I kiss your forehead that is always the feeling I feel and remember and I Love it!! The days after your birth have been some of the craziest, tiring yet amazing, and adventurous days of my life. I cherish every precious and crazy moment with you. I am so blessed to call you my son and live my life the best I can for you. I can not wait to see what these next days, weeks, months, and years have in store for you and our family! Remember son, you are a blessing to us from God!
Happy First Birthday my baby boy! It’s been the best year of my life and I hope it has been the best year for you!
Wrote from my heart to you!
Love, Your mama!!
