Can it be a year already?

Wow! How time flies. Has it already been a whole year since I held my little boy in my arms for the first time? Since he wrapped his little hand around my finger? Since I looked into those eyes and knew that my life would never be the same again? Where does the time go? Looking at pictures of my newborn little Harrison is so bittersweet. He has grown and changed so much since he was so tiny. I miss holding that cuddly baby. We used to fall asleep together in the rocking chair. His head would be on my chest. I miss those days. But now that he is older, we have so much more fun. We talk, we giggle, we tickle, we hug, we chase the dog. Harrison is becoming so smart. He knows so many words. He is almost saying "bye-bye" fully. He isn't walking quite yet- he is a pretty fast crawler. All of the changes in him seem so amazing to me. I say to myself, "I created this perfect little person" and it is just unbelievable. It seems like such a miracle. I am so thankful to be Harrison's mommy. So thankful that I get to share all of these moments with him. I get to watch him experience the world for the first time, see new things. It's the most amazing thing that a person can experience. I thank my Heavenly Father everyday for such a wonderful baby boy!
