My surgery was so peaceful, I remember singing Michael Jackson's "I Wanna Rock With You" while Dr. Johnson prepped me for surgery and as I layed on that table with your Daddy beside me I could not believe that in a matter of minutes our family would go from three to four. You came out screaming and all I heard the nurse say was "Look at those 2 dimples!" That's why til this day your Daddy always says that "you aren't pimpin' you're dimpin!" Haha!
Born at a mere 6 pounds 6 ounces you were perfect and exactly the same size as your big brother. Let me add that Kings was not at all excited to meet you and could not figure out why I was holding you. He freaked out and I knew that this was not going to be easy for him, but as soon as I got home with you, he adjusted fairly quickly and my sweet 20 month old baby boy was now a big brother and literally grew up before my very eyes.
I have to mention that during our stay, especially the first night together, we had the best nurse ever! Mandy....thank you so much for helping me during those first few days with Baby K you were a true God send and I am happy that I still get to follow your journey on a little thing called Facebook.
Well from that first car ride home to your 1st shots (surprisingly Mama did not cry) to our first plane ride to Seattle for Auntie Ky's bridal shower to our first emergency room visit...you had croup and many, many other firsts, I am so happy to call you my son and this has been an exciting year.

So it's now your 1st Birthday and here we are looking back at the past 365 days and keep asking myself where did the time go? I am so grateful for digital cameras and the internet because I have these beautiful keepsakes that I will now carry on with me forever.
I can't wait to see what the future lies ahead for you and with that I say thank you for choosing me to be your Mama! I have fallen in love 3 times in my life and you my dear are my 3rd! I love you Scoops and as my dear friend says "To the Moon and Back!"
