Today is my sweet little man's 1st birthday and I can't believe it. There are a few things that I know about Jacob and one of them is that he is AWESOME. I know mothers think their kids are great, but my kids really are:) There are a million reason I could give why Jacob is the phenomenal human specimen that he is but my favorite thing about him is this: Jacob is all in. The boy has no concept of holding back, he is in this life 100%, he is going to feel all there is to feel and take on any challenge that presents itself (except the challenge of coping without mom) :) I love him passionately and with everything in me I want to see him enjoy the life he has been given. God has blessed me with Jacob, not just that God has blessed me with 'a son' or 'a child' but God has blessed me with this child, with Jacob. I love him more than words and I am a better person because of him being here this past year.
So, I love you sweet Jacob and I pray that God shows you every day of your life that YOU ARE CHOSEN. You are His and we are blessed to have you, but are here for a reason, so continue to live passionately and fully for your God and there is no limit to what your life will be. You are loved greatly! Happy birthday little man, its been a fun year:)
