Happy Birthday, Xiao Tai Zi

At 4:01 AM Sunday March 30th, 2008 I held you in my arms for the first time and our lives changed forever. Never had I experienced anything as epic as when I held your warm, damp, squirming body and watched you take your first breaths and scream at the top of your little lungs.

And then, in the blink of an eye, you went from this:










to this:




Like every mother before, I am feeling so torn between joy and sadness on this incredibly special day. It has been so amazing watching you grow and learn and an honor to be able to guide and teach you so many wonderful things. We love you so very much, Quinlon Jade. Happy 1st Birthday, my son. You are an answer to our prayers and the light of our lives.

Love,
Mama and Baba

Aw....so hard to believe it's been a year. He is so gorgeous.

I so know what you mean--you miss that baby, yet you're glad to see him grow up...yet part of you is sad.
