Hudson's birthday week! - A letter to my boy





Dress c /o: Brick & Main


Dear Hudson, 

You are turning ONE this week. It's YOUR birthday week! Any mother will understand when I say that this year has been the slowest yet the fastest one of my life! There were days that I wished away, wanting you to be older so you would cry less or sleep more. However, once I realized the days were slipping through my fingers and you were growing far quicker than my mama heart could handle, I was determined to stop time....or at least make it slow down by soaking in every moment. I've tried my hardest to be present, be here now, be in the moment completely. To smile through tired eyes at 4 AM while you nursed in my arms. To kiss your fluffy little head every second of every day. To watch you mind grow just as fast as your little body. 
We have gone through a lot together this first year of your life and it's amazing just how much you have changed in such a short period of time.  I've watched your very first smile, heard your very first giggle and then belly laugh, saw you roll over for the first time, sit up for the first time, try your first food, learn to crawl, learn to talk, say mama for the first time, and so much more. How grateful I am to be able to continue to watch you learn and grow even more.
While watching you grow it's equally amazing how much I have grown too. This calling as your mother has helped me become the person I have always wanted to and do things that I never thought I could accomplish! You make me fearless because of the example I want to so badly be for you.
Three hundred and sixty-five days with you and you have changed me for the better in so many many ways my dear sweet boy... I can't imagine how far each of us will come watching you grow over the next several years. I cannot wait to find out!
