Three years ago, at this very moment, I was pacing the floors. You were ready to enter this world, and I was ready to keep you in! Little did I know, the joy and the laughter you would bring to my life, and the special place in my heart you would hold (and do hold, forever and ever).
I walked up and down the halls of the house for 3 hours. I took 2 showers. I rocked in the rocking chair and sang "you are my sunshine." I cried. I laughed. I waited to wake-up daddy, because I didn't want to share that moment with anyone. I wanted our last moments of being one person, to be between us. I wanted to tell you how scared I was, and how I didn't know how to be a mommy. I wanted to tell you that even though I didn't know what I was doing, that I loved you SO very much, and that I would try to be the best mommy I could be. I just wanted it to be me and my baby.... and it was... and it was perfect.
As I've said before, Bubba, we are so blessed that God chose you for us! You are such a light in our lives! You're laughter is contagious, your eyes light up entire rooms, your smile is genuine, your heart is pure and innocent, and your life is ever so precious.
You, Adam, are an amazing big brother. You have a little shadow, that wants to be just like you! I love that you don't (usually) act bothered by his follow-the-big brother games, and that you tell him you love him, daily. You are sweet, kind, and loving. I love this about you.
Adam, I can't express enough how special you are to me! You are my sunshine. You are my first born, and you will always hold a special place in my heart.
I love you! My big guy!
Happy Third Birthday, Bubba!
