…about Quincy turning ONE.

dear Quincy August,


i can’t believe that you’re one.

your birthday caught me a bit off-guard, sweet boy – like a sneaky little snowstorm, it’s arrived seemingly without warning, despite many, many a look at the forecast ahead for this day.

oh yes, despite all the Mama feelings that trapped me in denial for what it means for you, my baby, to be ONE, it was clear all along that this day, this storm, this growing you was coming all along.


you’ve changed and grown so, so much from the moment that my teary, anxious eyes met yours.

you gave us quite a scare, arriving so early, but just as your Daddy and i cradled you safely in our arms from the moment that your sweet soul arrived, God held our family so tenderly, too, knowing all along His plan for us, and for your BIG life.


one thing that hasn’t changed, though, dear Q, is your brother’s love for you. oh, he delights when you delight and saddens when you’re sad. but more than that is his fierce pride in calling you his, from the kisses that he leaves on your {still} bald head in the morning to his ever-loving tackles in the afternoon. we have a feeling that Lionel is turning you into quite the bruiser, yet seeing your bond develop and grow has been one of our most treasured joys since you joined our family last year.


it’s unfathomable for me to recall what life looked like before you, Quincy. sure, i can grasp at snippets or glimpses of a life that didn’t involve your emotive babbles of “GAH! GAH!” or your cutest ever limp-arm waves. life before you was a time that, yes, was precious, for i shared that time with your brother and your Daddy, but life WITH you is a moment that i wouldn’t trade in. i wouldn’t trade any spit-up session, any bout of mastitis, or any feverish night of sniffly noses and little sleep for a return to a life without your sweet face in it.

you make our family better, sweeter, balanced and joyful, and i couldn’t feel more blessed to be your Mama.

happy birthday, dear boy.
