|Little Liam discovering the world around him|
You are now one year old. You are so happy, full of giggles, smiles, sweetness, cuddles, and lots of love for others. I love having you as my little boy to feed and tickle and cuddle. After having Hannah, I thought it would be easier to have another girl: the same clothes, a similar psychology. As a nanny, all the children in my care were girls. When you arrived, I was and still am so delighted you are my little boy. I have a plan with Hannah for trying to raise her to be a strong, independent woman. For you, I know you're only one year old right now, yet I don't have any sort of a plan. I don't know who you'll grow to be or what tools you'll need along the way to be a loving, thoughtful, strong young man. I am unsure of these things and I hope you will gently show me the way to being the best mother for you that I can be. My heart and mind are totally in the role of being your mommy and I look forward to learning so much from you on our journey together. I have so much to learn from you, my little man, and you are already actively showing me your way. I love you with all my heart.
