Dearest Hagan Jude,
A year ago today, October 6, 2010, I was laid up in a hospital bed with a balloon in a place it shouldn’t have been in an attempt to speed up your arrival into this world.. I remember shivering from excitement/fear. Neither I, nor my body knew what it was in for. It was not in God’s plan for you to arrive that night, but rather the next day.
October 7, 2010, will always be one of the best days of my life. The minute I saw your conehead, I was in love. You were as blue as a blueberry, but you were mine. My very own blueberry that grew inside my body for almost a year. You were perfect in every single way and I loved you so much.
As I reflect on the way you have grown, both physically and mentally, it amazes me. God is the creator of every good and perfect thing and my sweet angel, you are one of them. The fact that God entrusted me as your mother amazes me even more! In your short year of life, you have already touched the hearts and lives of those around you. You are loved by so many people and I hope that you feel our love every single day.
My heart if full of joy, thankfulness, and love for you. I feel like the luckiest person on earth & I’m so grateful that I get to call you mine.
Here are never before seen pictures of the day you were born and proof that you were a conehead.
