Grayson Is One!

"I constantly go between wanting you to stay my little baby forever and being excited about all of the amazing things you'll do in this life" 💗

My second baby boy is officially one year old today...🎈

I distinctly remember this time last year. I was rocking Camden to bed for the last time as an only child wondering what our new life would be like as a family of 4. I questioned how we would do it...how Camden would adjust...or if I would ever sleep again. I thought about how excited I was to meet Grayson and who he would look like.

I should've known that he would be everything that we ever needed...because that is exactly what he has been to us. Everything. From that first moment I met him and held him in my arms, he's been everything. The one who gave me true confidence in my parenting, the one that grew my heart to a size I didn't know was possible, the one who gave his older brother a best friend to love and play with, and the one who gives us the perfect balance with his calm, patient, kind, easy-going personality.

There is no other way to say it other than to say that this past year he has given our life so much joy and happiness. It is because of him that we've that we've all grown as a family. We are so beyond thankful for a life with him in it and love him more than words can ever say.

To my sweet Grayson-

As your mom, naturally I love everything about you but want to know what I really really love about you? I love how...you prefer me to be the one to put you to bed and that you still let me rock you to sleep (I think it's only been 7 nights in the past year that I haven't..please let me rock you forever, ok?)...the wrinkles you get between your eyes when you smile...how you crack up every single time I put socks on your feet (speaking of-they are the cutest things I've ever seen)...how you have the most beautiful, expressive brown eyes...how you have the BIGGEST pout lip (that bottom lip means serious business)...how much you love laying in your crib with your brother, even when he's climbing all over you...how you dance to the songs in Moana...how you love to be held...and how you make me a better mama and person. You are so special. You mean the absolute world to all of us. Happy 1st birthday, our baby Gray! We love you more than you'll ever know. 


  1. Happy Birthday Grayson.

  2. Aw my friend, he is one lucky little man to have you as his mama. Love this post x
