a year of magical thinking

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!
