To Jasper, On His First Birthday

How, my love, did we get from here...


... to here?


It is not possible that it has only been one year. It feels as though you have been in my heart forever, my dirty-faced little monkey boy, my chunkster, my Jib. It feels as though I've loved you for an eternity.

I have, and I will.

Happy birthday, little man.

It was my daughter's second birthday this week and my head almost exploded with the impossibility that two years have passed since I birthed her.

What a gorgeous little thing he has turned out to be.

I also find it not possible that he has been here one year. Or maybe it's just that your pregnancy seemed like 20?

Okay, so he just made my heart melt into a tiny little puddle. Much like the chocolate (I hope it's chocolate) on his face.

You've got some marvelous genes there, girl.

Dear Jasper,

Happy Birthday! Now that you're one could you please stop growing up so fast? Pretty please?

Love and kisses,

Me

(OMG, the hair! And the cheeks! And the nose! Must. Chew. Them.)

(Not the hair though.)

(Actually, will stop at cheeks. Nom nom nom.)

(Happy birth day, Mama.)

Happy Birthday to Jasper - he's really cute (and that's from someone who's not really a "baby" person). I hope he has a great day - I have (I turned 40 today!)!

Happy Birthday my sweet little Jay-Man.

My heart squeezes with excitement to know that I get to smear big auntie smooches all over your dirty little face in just a few days.

Don't break my heart by not remembering me, dude. Or I'm going to have to get your sister to sit on you.

Love your favourite Redneck Aunty.

And think of all the places that little baby has been already this year. I mean, what baby gets to claim that they were changed out on the sidewalk in Nashville? Well... maybe half of Nashville... okay, so what little baby from Canada gets to say that? Jasper does!

Happy birthday, Jasper and love to you Catherine!!

It's amazing how fast they grow. One minute, they are these sweet, snuggly newborns...and then, in the next instant, they're running around and soaking in the world with eager curiosity.
