Happy 1st Birthday my sweet Beans, how you have changed my life.  One year ago tonight I became the Mom of two, Sebastian the snuggler and Sofie the spitfire.

We became a family of four on March 11, 2009. Your Pai and I became parents to two amazing little people.

From your first smiles to your first steps, this year has been a crazy ride.  We’ve experienced sleep deprivation together, heart breaking happiness and every emotion in between.

I hope that as the years pass you will become friends and keep each other close just as you have this past year.  You don’t like to be away from each other, you call out for your sibling when they aren’t in the same room as you.  You give each other hugs, chase each other, laugh at each other and play together.

When your Pai walks in the room you two ignore me, you only have eyes for him, it’s okay I try to not let that bug me since you see me all day.  You both love being chased and laugh hysterically when we crawl around on the floor after you.  Sofie you love to give hugs and sloppy wet kisses, Sebastian you love to cuddle and have recently found a passion for dancing.

You love going for walks and car rides.  You make us laugh with your squeals of delight.  You make our hearts melt with your love for us.  Do you know how much we love you?


I wish I could write a better one year birthday note, but I’m not very eloquent so I’ll settle with how I feel.

 I love you my Beans, thank you for choosing me.

  4. You don’t need to be eloquent (and this post is beautiful regardless of what you think), because the Beans know how much you love them by what a great mom you are.

    Happy 1st birthday, sweet Sofie and Sebastian! Your Mumma loves you more than you’ll ever know.
