Our Wesley is One!

I can hardly believe it!

It's crazy to me that the time has gone by so quickly. I remember this time last year we were still at the hospital, wondering when our little man would suck on his own, bathing him in the same size bucket they gave me to vomit in just minutes before they rolled me into my c-section, changing his tiny preemie clothes while minding all the wires that were used to monitor his vitals, pumping, feeding, sleeping, receiving visitors (and their wonderful meals) like clock-work, putting Wes to sleep in his little incubator, discovering who our little son would be as he smiled, wrinkled his forehead, and brought indescribable joy to our lives.

I can't, nor do I want to, imagine our lives without Wesley. He is more than I could of dreamed or wished for in a son and he is cuter than I ever thought possible. (I always knew I would know if my child really wasn't that cute...and I'm happy to report that he's adorable!)

We celebrated his birthday on Sunday the only way we knew how...with tons of family and friends. We are so blessed to have this community to raise our son in and thank you all for a memorable day- brief, hectic, fun!

Grandma Evans made her famous angle food cake and Wes ate it like a little Prince!

It's hard to take it all in...motherhood, family, each passing day as Wes continues to become a big boy. I pray that God will help me enjoy every minute of it and that he will bless Jeff and I with the strength and wisdom to guide Wes in the coming years. We are all so very blessed and overwhelmed with gratitude!
