Dear Sweet Collin,
I was looking through our pictures today, as I so often do, and I found these that were taken April 18, 2009...almost exactly one year ago.
My how you have changed. It's enough to bring me to tears at times.
Time is just going so fast and before I know it you will be grown...
I try not to get too far ahead of myself as I want to enjoy you today exactly the way you are right now. I want to embed in my head the sound of your sweet voice, the melodic way you say "I love you mommy", the little giggle that I often hear coming from the other room that tells me you are getting into trouble. Life goes fast but I want to slow down enough to take notice of each and every thing that makes you who you are...
Oh sweet boy when I look back at you a year ago today there is no mistaking that you have grown, you have changed. It's a part of life, I know, and as the years go by there will be things that will inevitably change but there is one thing that will ALWAYS remain the same and that is my love for you, my first born son, my treasure! On the day you were born I gave you my heart and it is yours to keep forever...that, my child, is something that will never change!
