Happy Birthday Henry.
Today you are one year old.
Will you have a party?
Will you smoosh cake and frosting all over yourself like all my other children did?
Will you enjoy tearing paper off a present more than the actual present itself?
Will you get a present.........?
I don't know.
But I do know......
This will be the ONLY birthday where you will be without a mommy and daddy...
And when we get home....
you will have cake and presents and singing and pictures and hugs and kisses until you fall asleep on my shoulder exhausted from the joy and excitement of it all.
Happy First Birthday my baby boy.
We will celebrate soon.
