Four years ago I have birth to this angel. 
This angel that forever changed my heart, my life, my world.

As long as I can remember I have wanted to be a mom. And on March 22 that dream came true for the first time. I could never have expected what this feels like. To love someone so much it aches inside. To want to protect someone, to fear for someone, to pray over someone with an amount of love and passion you barely know how to manage it all.

Aiden, your heart, your life…everything about you is perfect.

Right before my plane took off this week I sent Chris a text, with teary eyes, that said
“If something happens to me make your dreams come true and all of their dreams too…because each of you have already made mine happen.”

That is the absolute truth. 

I love you Aiden. Happy 4 years sweet boy. Your mama adores you with all that she is. 
xoxo

    Absolutely beautiful Casey 🙂 And I totally feel the same way about motherhood – I had no idea how incredible it would be until my little boy (he's one now!!!) came into my life. God is so very good!

    He is just so beautiful Casey. Happy birthday Aiden.
    And there is something so amazing about the way these babies come into the world and change us. Suddenly our lives and our dreams don't matter anymore and the only thing that does is them and theirs! And we don't mind a single bit….!

    Awww happy birthday to your little man. I love the frog in a jar pic! I say similar things to my husband when I think if I were to die. I always tell him to get re-married, be happy and try to find a wife who will homeschool our kids. Lord willing that won't even be the case though. Thanks for the link up!

    You are the most proud mommy, it is so inspiring. Though we've never met, it radiates from your photos how much you light up and shine when you are around your kids. What a blessing your beautiful children will have to read through your blog and know how endless your love is for them. Have a beautiful weekend! God bless!

    Happy Birthday to your sweet boy. Did you know there is a commercial on TV with a little boy who looks a LOT like him? I do a double take every time I see it. I think he's a little bit older than Aiden, though.

    "If something happens to me make your dreams come true and all of their dreams too…because each of you have already made mine happen."

    Whoah! That line caused me to blink to keep from tearing up. That is so powerful and beautiful and….some other wonderful words I am at a loss for right now.

    Thank you for the little peek into your family life. It is blogs like yours that allow me to release a bit more fear about motherhood.

    Thank you and God bless you and yours.
