It’s amazing how a children’s book can touch you so profoundly. I’d never heard of or read On The Night You Were Born before Mr. President was born, but the first time I read it, with my baby snuggled in my arms, I cried. I cried because I’d never felt love the way I loved Mr. President. It was combination of love, overwhelming love, and blessings. I’ve never been more thankful for anything in my life.
Mr. President was born on a Saturday night. So every Saturday night (plus many, many other times throughout the week), we read On The Night You Were Born before bedtime. We read it without fail.
With his first birthday fast approaching (I mean, fastest year of my life!), I scoured my mind and Pinterest for creative First Birthday Themes. Then it hit me, we’d celebrate “on the night Mr. President was born”.
I spent weeks designing, creating, and painting for his FIRST birthday party. And in the end, it was all worth it. I couldn’t be more happy with how it all turned out.
Happy Birthday, little guy. I love you more than you will ever know.
