Dear Erick Ryan,
This year has truly been one of the hardest years of my life. Becoming a mother certainly did not come easily. Getting accustomed to little or no sleep, new responsibilities, new things to stress about. But it has also been a beautiful year full of happiness and love and plenty of first. Erick Ryan you have truly blessed us and seeing you grow and hitting new milestones has been such a privilege to me. To think that just one year ago I was in labor with you anxiously awaiting your arrival and now your one. I am so happy that I was able to keep you happy and safe and healthy throughout this year of life. And I hope god grants me the health and guidance to do so for many more.
You have been such a blessing little one and you have made me so immensely happy. Because of you I continue to move forward despite sometimes wanting to give up. Celebrating your first year has been bittersweet. There are so many things I am going to miss. I am going to miss your newborn scent, I am going to miss having you lay on my chest and sleeping peacefully and most of all I am going to miss you being my baby. But there are so many things that I am looking forward to. Like you walking and talking, I cannot wait to have full conversations with you. I cant wait until you start to tell me that you love me. I cant wait to potty train you cause little one your diapers are something serious LOL. There are so many firsts coming that I am excited about.
But I want you to know that no matter how big you grow, or how old you are you will always be my baby. You will always be my 7lb 5oz 20 inch baby. You will never be to big to lay on my chest, you will never be to old to hold my hand and fall asleep and I will never stop loving you.
You are my Erick Ryan, my reason to live, to work, and to strive for the better. I am your mother and you are my baby and that is a bond that will never die, not when I am old, not when your married with children I will always be hear little one.
