This is about a month late, but I didn't want to miss the opportunity to wish my only son a happy first birthday.  

James, you have completely changed our lives.  Parenthood is nothing like we thought it would be... it's so much better. 

I fell in love with you the second I heard your sweet cry and your Daddy told me that you were a boy!  We never imagined how much we could love someone so small.  Only a sweet baby could be motivation enough to stay awake through an entire night and still get up the next day and be happy about it.  

You are such an entertainer already.  You love people and you love making everyone laugh.  There isn't a shy bone in that little body, and you are definitely ALL boy.

We thank God every day for the blessing of your life.  You are an amazing gift.  

Your first "cupcake" was actually a sweet potato muffin.  

I could hardly get a picture before you shoved the whole thing in your mouth.

Wondering if we will give you another one.

Nobody needed to show you how to open presents.  

Happy birthday, sweet James Andrew.  We love you more than words can say.
