one year ago today!

dearest henry boy,
one year ago today we met you for the first time...

mom was thinking: he's so white!

dad was thinking: yes! boys still outnumber the girls. (or just girl. that's me. flyin' solo.)

owen was thinking: awww man... he's gonna steal all my stuff, huh?

how did we ever live without you?
you have become part of us! our little family is somehow more complete with you here. we have come to love your happy disposition, your fearlessness, and that cute little dancing booty. you have us all wrapped around your little finger, and you are so easy to love.

and now look at you:

your personality cracks us up everyday. our little bulldozer, our hank the tank- you are certainly no baby anymore. your smile is infectious and your giggle is irresistible. those chubby cheeks are so smooshable and kissable and we just can't get enough of you!

this year has flown by so fast and even though you are a little rascal and get into everything, stop growing already! it's your job to stay the baby, ok?

we love you beautiful baby.

happy birthday, henry boy.

one year ago today...

*** repost***

dear little one,
it's the day before your birth-day and i can't tell you how excited we are to meet you.
looking down at this big ol' belly of mine i can hardly believe that after all these months and all this anticipation, you are about to make your grand entrance into this world. i hope you are ready for the craziness that is being an erickson and that you are looking forward to getting to know your mom, dad, and brother (and the rest of the world that is waiting to know you).
i'm sure you're enjoying your last few hours of preparation - and we can't wait to feel of that spirit you are sure to bring with you straight from heaven.
we love you so much and anxiously await your arrival.

mom, dad, and big brother o.

can you believe that was one whole year ago?
we had no idea!!!
