I don’t even know where to begin to describe how wonderful this past year has been. I can only say that if you are a parent or grandparent, that you have an idea!
One year ago tonight, I received the most wonderful phone call of all! A phone call that would change our lives and bless us like you can’t even imagine! It was my son-in-law and he said something to the affect of, “this is it, we’re headed to the hospital, meet us there.” And my daughter in the background saying something more to the affect of, “you’re right, I’ll know when I’m in labor!!”
Ok, sobbing like a baby after watching his birth video………..back to the regular scheduled blog post……..
One year ago, at 1:54 pm, Beckett James McManigal was born.
You’re our first grandbaby and the sweetest of little boys. It has been a joy, a pleasure and a blessing to watch you grow this year. And grow you have! You’ve gone from a sleepy little newborn, where for hours on end we would just hold you and stare at your sweet little face. Before we knew it you were crawling and loving all your toys, especially books, balls and duckies! You became so active that the only time you’d sit still was bottle time. You’re now walking, talking a few words, eating anything and everything and quite the big boy! You love being outside, you love the beach, the pool, balls, the slide and the birds! As much as you’ve blessed our lives, you too are blessed! You have a Mommy & Daddy that love you like you can’t even imagine, lots and lots of Aunts & Uncles, Grandma & Grandpa, Papa & Me and lots and lots of friends! Beck, I know I can speak for everyone when I say “I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around your neck!!”
Happy Birthday to Our Sweet Boy!
And here’s a birthday slideshow that is guaranteed to make you smile!!
