The Last Day You Were One

Dear Jude,

Today was the last day you’ll be one years old. This is it. There will be no re-do, no pause button, no going backwards. I still can’t believe it’s been 24 months of Jude(ism).  I think these late in the evening photographs stand as the greatest expression of your last day as a one year old.

We went to the town pool today and you ran and jumped and dove under water even though you have no idea how to swim and no real assurance that I would reach underneath the water to save you. When we got home you insisted on going in our kiddie pool- diving and swimming all on your own. I would say this is a perfect way to welcome in the terrible twos. It’s going to be the longest year of my life.

Happy Birthday you gorgeous and terrible little monster.

xoxo- Mama
