I literally cannot believe that almost 12 months have gone by already. Say what? I feel like it was just yesterday when we were driving him home from the hospital for the first time. His first year certainly flew by. For my husband and I, this year has probably been the best year of our lives so far, it sure has been for me.
The joy that this little kid brings into our life is greater than any joy I have ever known before. The little smile that I see every morning when I walk into his room. It is the biggest smile – the kind of smile that you give when you find out you are going to Disney World for the first time- everyday.
The love that I have for this little boy is indescribable. He is the light in my life and my little best friend. He is the sunshine when the skies are grey. He is my mini-me.
This first year has been nothing short of amazing. Everyday spent with him is a pleasure. I love watching him grow and learn new things. I am blessed to be called his mother and to have him be called my first. It has been an absolute joy being there for those very special moments- from watching him roll over for the first time, to seeing him sit up independently, to watching him gain the strength to stand, and even take his first steps.
Landon Carter Speer, I love you beyond words and look forward to every year that is to come. You make me so proud to be called your mom. Don’t ever stop smiling. You make the world, my world, a better place. I love you forever and always! ~Mom
