I remember the day we brought him home. The sweet smell of him. The tiny weight of him and feeling nervous that I could break him. I felt anxious and happy - like I had butterflies in my stomach. I remember thinking "wow, he has a whole lot of hair!" I look back at these pictures now and think of what a magical year it has been and how immensely lucky I am to have this little person in my life.
I'll leave you with some shots from Jackson's birthday party at my parents' house over the weekend. We all had a blast - thanks to everyone who came to celebrate!
