One

Dear Little Man Cub,

Today you are one.


When you were born something shifted in our universe. You might think I'm just saying that because you're ours, but I think if we surveyed grandparents around the world they would agree.


Even before you're born we know we're going to love you, but we're a little bit shocked by how quickly and completely that happens.


It has been my great great joy to watch you grow and change this year.


To watch you become more you.


Your mama and daddy are wonderful parents and I'm thankful every day God made you a family. I'm grateful too for technology that allows me to 'see' you from so many miles away. You know more and more with every passing day and it's thrilling to watch as you explore and discover this great big world around you.

Did you know that while you're growing and learning we're growing and learning too?  Since you came along and stole my heart I know what the songwriter means when he sings of  sunshine on a cloudy day.


I also know for certain now a smile is contagious.


I've learned too, that when the world feels harsh and off kilter one toothless gummy grin can set it spinning right again.


Happy birthday baby boy.


 You are so very precious and your Nana loves you deep and wide.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He make straight your paths. " Proverbs 3:5-6

  1. Precious! There is no love like a grandparent's love because we get to love in a double layer.

  3. It's amazing that it has been a year already! Tommy is beautiful! It has been a fun year watching Tommy grow. The next year as he enters toddler-hood and gets some teeth, will find him changing even more. What fun all of this is going to be! I'm so happy for your entire family, that you all have this wonderful gift from God! Happy Birthday, Tommy!

  7. Aw...such a handsome guy! I can't believe it's been a year. It seems like just last week we were counting down to his arrival with you. Grandchildren are a very precious thing...so different from how it was with our children. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Happy birthday, little man!
