To Jasper, On His First Birthday

May 18, 2009

How, my love, did we get from here…


… to here?


It is not possible that it has only been one year. It feels as though you have been in my heart forever, my dirty-faced little monkey boy, my chunkster, my Jib. It feels as though I’ve loved you for an eternity.

I have, and I will.

Happy birthday, little man.

    You are consistently good at making adorable babies.

    Happy Birthday beautiful boy, and happy birthday to you too momma – it was just as much your day one year ago as it was his! :)

    It was my daughter’s second birthday this week and my head almost exploded with the impossibility that two years have passed since I birthed her.

    It’s the dirty faces that make them so endearing sometimes. ;-)

    It goes so fast.

    Happy Birthday to your gorgeous son! It is amazing how fast they go from new baby to teeny tiny toddler.

    mummyof5monsters May 18, 2009 at 7:08 am

    that is really sweet:)

    Mom101 May 18, 2009 at 7:49 am

    What a gorgeous little thing he has turned out to be.

    I also find it not possible that he has been here one year. Or maybe it’s just that your pregnancy seemed like 20?

    TeacherMommy May 18, 2009 at 7:52 am

    Okay, so he just made my heart melt into a tiny little puddle. Much like the chocolate (I hope it’s chocolate) on his face.

    You’ve got some marvelous genes there, girl.

    Happy birthday gorgeous little guy. Ah, if only we could give them something to make them slow down already!

    Courtney May 18, 2009 at 7:58 am

    Happy Birthday, Jasper…may the upcoming year bring you yummies and hugs and laughs, good times and rock and roll, little man!

    With your mom? I’m sure it’s guaranteed.

    Happy Birthday Jasper.

    He was born on my due date – and two days after my son was actually born. May babies rock!

    Stephanie N. May 18, 2009 at 11:02 am

    I can’t believe it’s been a whole year. I guess that means it’s been over a year since I started reading your blog. Wow. Happy Birthday, little man!

    Susan (5 Minutes For Mom) May 18, 2009 at 11:15 am

    Isn’t it crazy how fast they grow?!? He is sooooo cute though…

    I can’t believe he’s already 1! Time just seems to keep flying by.

    Lydia May 18, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    It’s so amazing how a person on the earth for such a short time can make you feel like they have been a part of you forever.

    Happy birthday, baby!

    Avonlea May 18, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    Oh, look at those cheeks! Happy Birth Day, little man. My birthday was just two days ago and my little man’s THIRD (how can it be three already) birthday is next week.

    Sarah May 18, 2009 at 2:00 pm

    Ah happy birthday! What a beautiful child both as a baby and a one year old.

    geelizzie May 18, 2009 at 2:02 pm

    Those rosy cheeks! I bet everyone who sees him can’t resist pinching them!

    Oz May 18, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    Happy Birthday to Jasper!

    Chicky Chicky Baby May 18, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    Dear Jasper,

    Happy Birthday! Now that you’re one could you please stop growing up so fast? Pretty please?

    Love and kisses,

    Me

    (OMG, the hair! And the cheeks! And the nose! Must. Chew. Them.)

    (Not the hair though.)

    (Actually, will stop at cheeks. Nom nom nom.)

    (Happy birth day, Mama.)

    Happy Birthday to Jasper – he’s really cute (and that’s from someone who’s not really a “baby” person). I hope he has a great day – I have (I turned 40 today!)!

    Mammatalk May 18, 2009 at 4:20 pm

    Happy Birthday my sweet little Jay-Man.

    My heart squeezes with excitement to know that I get to smear big auntie smooches all over your dirty little face in just a few days.

    Don’t break my heart by not remembering me, dude. Or I’m going to have to get your sister to sit on you.

    Love your favourite Redneck Aunty.

    Heather May 18, 2009 at 9:11 pm

    Wow, he is mighty tasty looking! I may fight Tania for his cheeks.

    Happy 1st birthday Jasper!

    Heather May 18, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    Happy Birthday to you J-man! May your year be filled with fabulousness beyond your wildest dreams (and since you haven’t been around long the bar is pretty low *wink*)

    Much love to you Catherine on this bitter sweet day. (((hugs)))
