Today is Samuel’s first birthday! I cannot believe how fast the time has passed, and looking back, how much Samuel has changed over the months. Yes, I know it happens over and over for all parents and grandparents, but each time it is pretty miraculous. I cherish each moment, from the first call notifying us of his arrival, to our first time holding him, to watching him develop and grow over the months, almost always with a big grin on his face. I hope you will enjoy a few of these moments with me.
Tomorrow Alan and I will attend Samuel’s first birthday party, a milestone that, ironically, he won’t remember. We will though, and isn’t that what first birthday parties are all about?
