matteo,

one year ago today, you came into this world and we were forever changed. never in a million years could we have imagined how much love and joy you would bring into our lives. you have so much light in your soul, that it radiates out of you and makes everything around so much brighter. our hearts are so filled and each day continues to get better. you made us a mamma and a papa and that is the greatest gift we could have ever been given. thank you for your smiling face, contagious laugh, morning snuggles, opened mouth kisses,  daily serenades,  wicked dance moves, for teaching us to slow down and see things through your eyes, and  most importantly, for your unconditional love. you truly are the love of our lives and  the air in our lungs. we can’t wait for many more adventures with you. happy 1st birthday potato! we love you!

love,

mamma & papa

joy

…..i can’t believe he’s mine…..

^^^^^^^

it pretty amazing how much a little baby can change in just six months,

and change you for that matter.

it’s like you can’t take your eyes off of them for one second

in fear that your going to miss their next big discovery,

or the first of many little things they do in their precious beginning months of life,

like giggling, rolling over, discovering their hands, or imitating you.

they help you to stop and enjoy the little thing in life

because you realize how mesmerized they are

 at their first sight of rain, or smelling a flower, or noticing a shadow in the dark

or hearing a happy song or feeling the wind hit their face.

and each day your love for them grows so much that you feel like your heart is going to burst.

you can’t remember what life was like before them, nor do you want to.

^^^^^^^

i only wish i could pause certain moments in time

because i know that it will all be gone in the blink of an eye.

so i find my self writing down all the special moments, every first, little colds,

likes and dislikes, and everything in between

so i can look back one day and remember how my life was forever changed by this little baby.

^^^^^^

…..i just can’t believe he’s mine!…..

here it is as promised.

the latest on the bump situation.

we’re getting close to the end here

and i’m getting anxious to meet this little baby.

^^^^^

don’t hate me moms out there, but this pregnancy has been wonderful.

i still feel great, my hair and nails are amazing and besides this vegas heat

i’m actually still comfortable.

i hope i’m not speaking too soon when i say, i love being pregnant,

but i kinda do!!!

^^^^^

the hard part is all this waiting.

waiting to see who he’ll looks like,

waiting to see him smile

 his smell and cry, those tiny fingers and toes,

and everything else there is  to discover.

we can’t wait to share him with all of you guys as well.

^^^^^

ps. just trying to finish up a few little details before the nursery reveal,

so hope you guys stick around.

i think it will be worth it!
