FC: The First Year! 2010
1: Dear Emersyn, I cannot believe that it has been an entire year since the day we first met. Love at first sight cannot even begin to describe the feeling I had when you were placed in my arms. Your eyes drew me into a world that I could not even imagine. Your beauty surpasses all the beauty that I had ever known, and I know that God has given me the most important job in the world; to be your mother. Happy Birthday! I love you! Love, Your mommy

46: My sweet Emersyn Grace, I can’t believe that today you turn 1. It seems like just yesterday we were planning your arrival. Your Mom and I are so blessed to have you in our lives. You have truly shown us the meaning of Love. During this past year we’ve shared some great moments, as you’ve seen in this book that Mommy put together for you. I still remember those first days. I soaked up every moment, every bit of your baby-ness. I would hold you for hours, talk to you, thinking how thankful we were to have such a healthy baby. I would find myself watching you as you slept and I would feel myself welling up with such love for you that it’s like my heart is going to burst. When I look at your little face, so innocent, pure and unspoiled, I just melt. It’s just unbelievable to me that I could produce something so beautiful.
47: It’s amazing how just the thought of you can bring a smile to my face. I can’t wait to see what the next years bring for you. What “firsts” you accomplish and what challenges you overcome. Just know that Mommy and Daddy are always here for you. We love you so much! Love, Daddy
