Barrett - my sweet baby boy. When we found out we were having a boy we were so happy. The closer it got to your due date I became terrified. I was so madly in love with your sister, I wasn't sure I had enough room in my heart for one more.

Tuesday February 24th came. They handed me my 8lb 8oz baby boy and I immediately melted. You fit in our family like the missing puzzle piece.

Your sister fell in love with you at first sight. She has helped so much. You love her just as much - before you could crawl you would get so upset when she left the room. Once you learned how to crawl you began following her all around the house and she loves it. We are so blessed to have you both.

The joy that you have brought into our house is like no other. Your sweet smile and laughter are contagious. There isn't one person that has met you that didn't fall in love within seconds. I pray that you always have this joy!

I pray that God will continue to bless everything your hands do and everywhere your feet take you. That you will allow God to use you however he chooses.... that you fall in love with your heavenly father as much has you have fallen in love with your earthly father.

My favorite part of the day is putting you to bed. Rocking you to sleep - continuing to rock even after you have fallen asleep. Singing & talking to you, praying for you, and just watching you sleep.

In the last few months I have learned to stop, take everything in, enjoy the moment, live in the moment, quit trying to "train" you, quit worrying about schedules and letting you be the free spirit that God created you to be.

You ware me out on a daily basis, most of the time I am 3 steps behind you and you have already unrolled the toilet paper - I don't know why that makes you so happy but it does. Sometimes I let you get to the toilet paper just because I love to see that incredible smile.

I have realized by watching your sister grow up that "this" is only a season and I don't want to miss one second of it. I want to savor every day with you and your sister.

You are now ONE and I can't believe it.

I have enjoyed every second and can't wait to watch you grow....

I can't wait to see what God has in store for you.

As it's been said many times before,

the days may be long,

but the years are short!

Making money on the internet is easy in the underground world of [URL=]blackhat hosting[/URL], It's not a big surprise if you don't know what blackhat is. Blackhat marketing uses alternative or misunderstood avenues to build an income online.
