Dear Leo,

Happy 1st Birthday to my sweet little boy!

One amazing year ago, you joined our family! It feels like yesterday and forever at the same time. I wasn't sure I could love another baby as much as your sister but the instant I saw your face that doubt vanished and my heart exploded.

Having a little boy, you, was so much better than I ever imagined! There was a bit of a learning curve at first- I never cleaned the wall so many times and may have had to change your clothes and bedding a bunch due to the "fire hose." You are definitely a mama's boy, which I love. From the very beginning you were a laid back baby, rarely crying and just content to watch everything around you. Your sweet personality shined through and continues to be the highlight of our days.

I have so enjoyed watching Audrey become a big sister and how you both just adore each other. You are each other's best friend which makes my heart swell. You fit perfectly into our family and I can't even remember life before you were part of it.

This year has been the toughest, and yet the best year of my life. Being a mama to two is no joke. You  did your best to ease me into it and I couldn't have asked for a better baby. We do need to work on sleep a bit but even then I really can not complain since you have been a dream baby in every other way!

You have taught me so many things: patience (you are way more patient than your mama), unconditional love, how to find joy in the simple things, and to just be. I am so grateful to be your mama and while I am sad to see this first year coming to an end, I am so excited to watch you grow into a little boy!

Thank you for picking me as your mama! I feel honoured to have such an important role in your life.


Your Lucky Mama
