Happy birthday to the littlest love of my life!
You are without a doubt the most incredible little boy. Your laugh is contagious, and your joy just lights up a room. You have brought so much joy to our lives. I love to wake up and hear your babbling, and then see your smiling face. There are just so many things I want to say, but I lack the words. You are one of life's best blessings. xo Mom

This has without a doubt been the hardest, most stressful and terrifying year of my life. But it has also been the happiest. My days are spent with three of the most loving fellas, and it just wouldn't be the same without Linden. I promised myself I wouldn't cry when I wrote this, but here I am, sitting in the middle of Panera, being a weeping mess. I remember the very first time I heard Linden cry, and the first time he laid on my chest. I remember the long, sleepless nights, the reflux, the crying. But it all pales in comparison to the memories of endless snuggles, seeing him walk for the first time, hearing him say "mama" and learn sign language. My heart is just too full.
Here's to many more years with my sweet baby bear!
