S: Nicholas John Baldelli
BC: Your 1st Birthday Covered in cake and icing, Your smile stretched ear to ear. A single lit candle celebrates, The joy of your first year. We sing happy birthday, You play midst wrapping paper and bows. We marvel at how this little boy has touched our lives, From just one year ago. I will always remember the first time I held you, Kissed your head, and whispered your name. You've changed mommies and daddies lives forever, Our hearts will never be the same. As a child you'll always love you're birthday, For all the sweet and presents too. As parents we'll always love your day, For this is the day we got the gift of you!!! Each year we'll add another candle, So proud to see you grow. But always with the memory, Of your first birthday long ago. -adapted from a poem by: Teri Harrison
