September 10th was Matthew's FIRST Birthday and I am completely amazed that it has already been a year. I look back over the past year and wonder where the time went. Although when you were born, our first week at the hospital was a shakey one. I look back on those moments and wonder how we kept going. God truly blessed us with your brother and you. I can't believe I am the mother of two wonderful boys! I adore you both so much and my heart is filled with love for you two. I am so very proud of both you and your brother. It is so hard for me to imagine that it has already been a year. What an amazing time we have together. I enjoy every minute we have (even at 2:00 am when you just want to play). One year ago, I was anticipating your arrival into this world. You decided to make your arrival 4 weeks early and I was a little scared. You didn't want to waste any time! Always remember that I am very thankful and truly blessed to have you and your brother. I thank God for you daily. Here are a couple of pictures of Matthew's First Birthday.
