Avett's First Birthday

The day you were born.

And today on your first birthday.

Avett, it is impossible to explain the love I have for you. 
You brighten my day every morning when you wake up and your smile makes me incredibly happy.
When I think back on your first year much of it is a blur, and you can attribute that to being #3 in the birth order, but there are certain things I will never forget. 
Nursing you to sleep for every nap and every bedtime.
Wearing you in the ergo pretty much 1/3 of the year. 
You sleeping in our bed every single night snuggled close to me. 
Your beautiful eyes and your delicate blonde hair. 
The mutual love between you and your siblings and how happy you three are to see each other every single morning. 
Your sense of humor and your adorable laugh. 
How much I think you look like your dad and your Aunt Katie and your Grandpa Finnegan
Your need to be close to me and held pretty much all the time.
Your easy, peaceful and calm water birth. 
I have loved this year with you and can't wait to experience everything this next year has to offer.
I think a New Years birthday is going to be awesome throughout the years.
You are special, loved, and your presence is valued so very much. 
Happy birthday my sweet son!
