Today my little boy turns one year old.
So please just pardon me while I spend the entire day in tears, it's sped by so fast it leaves me dizzy.
David Clark, you have left me stunned and speechless at this love I am capable of feeling.
Finding a whole new reason to live has made this last year sweeter than any other one in my life.
The sleepless nights (12 months of sleepless nights!), the tantrums, the poops and the spit ups.
The sweet, quiet hours (so many hours!) spent nursing, the gummy smiles that turned into gap-toothed smiles, your warm little hands and pointed index finger, the army crawl you've perfected. I am amazed by you, the most spectacular thing in the whole universe. We belong to each other and that is the very best thing I know.
You are smart and affectionate and serious and clever and so darned cute, I can't believe you exist. Every day is brighter because of you.
I love you, sweet Joony, more than I will ever have words to say. Happy birthday!
