(Simon 9 months)
To my sweet Simon Hayes on your seventh birthday - how can it be? Time has flown by so quickly for me. I still see those big baby blues whenever I look into your eyes and that beautiful smile that always lights up the room! You made me a mama exactly seven years ago on one of the most glorious nights of my life. I will never forget that first tiny cry, the shouts of joy, the laughter the praises that sang out when you entered this world and I have loved you more and more each day ever since. I am so proud of the boy that you are becoming and so honored that God chose me to be your mama - it humbles me to think that He would give you to me to teach me so much about His love and grace. You kissed me on the forehead tonight before bed and snuggled in close so grown up already but yet still so small. I want you to know that you're the biggest gift I could ever ask for more perfect to me than anything in the whole world. You have the most beautiful heart and tender spirit and I can't wait to see what this next year holds!
Happy birthday my darling I love you bigger than all the stars!
