The Greatest Birthday Gift

It is my first birthday as a mama and boy have things changed since last year. Among other things, I'm more sleep deprived, I haven't changed out of my pajamas yet, and there will be no work cupcakes or happy hour drinks for me. I actually even forgot it was my birthday until my husband reminded me this morning! Oh that mommy brain!

Yet, it is already the best birthday ever. My baby boy is sitting next to me making silly noises and I have never been so in love. He is the best gift and biggest blessing I could have asked for. And, he makes me want to be a better, kinder, and happier person, which is the best gift I can give myself.

So, happy birthday to me and a happy spring day to all the people who have been blessed with a child's love. I'm sure not every day will feel like a birthday celebration, but I know each moment will be a gift.
