Happy Birthday Jacob!!

Happy Birthday 1 Year Old!
This year has been a blur.
I still remember those tiny feet
When you were so barely born.

You slept so sweetly in my arms

Eyelashes soft against your cheeks

So fresh and new

How could anything be more perfect?

Our world shaken

We wondered how long your stay would be

You are a fighter, my hero

A miracle.

Home again

So safe, so sound

Joyous rapture

Love complete.

My how you have grown

Fingerprints creep upon the walls

Your smiles forever

Chiseled upon my heart.

Happy Birthday 1 year old!
