The Big One

Dear Camden Elliott,

A year ago today, you were born, and we became a family of four.

You made Riley a big sister and she adores you more than anything in the world. She protects, mothers, plays with, and teaches you everything she knows. Sometimes she'll just give you a hug or a pat and say, "I wubs you so much wil buddy".

You stole my heart from the moment I saw your little face and we have a very special bond. I know next to nothing about boys, but I'm learning as I go and loving every minute of it.

Today was such a happy day, full of cake, treats, friends and love. But for the rest of my life when I think back on this day I'll remember how this afternoon you woke up early from your nap and it was just you and I for a bit. We laid together face to face on the couch and just snuggled, gave kissies, and giggled. I became overwhelmed by how much I loved you and teared up just a bit and my tears fascinated you and made you laugh even more.

You bring so much joy to our lives. Happy 1st birthday our Cam-Cam, CamBoo, Camden Sunshine. We love you so very much.
