A year to remember

Dear, Oliver Gadisa Lyric -
One year. I have seen you with my own eyes. In flesh and bone. You make me stop and see...everything. It must have been so scary to change everything you knew. Be brought to a new place where everything was different. Sounds, smells and sights. You welcomed it so gracefully. Like an old soul. Watching and taking everything in so thoughtfully. My favorite part of my day is rocking you to sleep. Music humming in the background, you snuggled into my arms silently staring at photos of your life before us on the wall as you drift to sleep. I wonder what you are thinking. I know you won't remember, but I won't let you forget. Each day with you is an honor. I hope you think we have done a decent job so far. Thank you for everything that you are and for everything that you have taught me to be. I had no idea how to be a mother until you first looked at me and simply smiled and your whole face lit up. I knew then I was put here to be yours and we would figure it out together.
Happy one year anniversary, Oliver Gadisa! We love you dearly.
