dear beckett

it was one year ago today that you arrived and forever changed me.  you made me a mother, something that i had dreamed of becoming.  i have experienced what it feels like to have my heart expand so much that i feel it may burst.  your sweet smile could light up texas, and your joyful laughter is quite possibly the best thing i’ve ever heard.  you are busy and adventuresome, constantly searching for something new to explore, climb, evaluate.  you love to sit and read a book, something i hope you’ll continue for all your days.  you are sweet as can be, telling everyone ‘hi’ wherever we go.  strangers comment on what a cute kid you are, and one lady even said that your smile ‘made her whole day’.  i could say that that’s the way i feel every day.

you have my eyes and your daddy’s mouth, but you are really just beckett – a completely unique little human.  i am working hard to live in the moment with you, enjoying what you can do right now, and at the same time, i’m so very excited to see who you become.

today, and every day, my cup runneth over.
