Dear Henry,

Happy 1st birthday!  I cannot believe a year has passed since you were born. I can honestly say, Hen, it’s been a great 12 months. 

A year ago, to this day, your mommy texted me while in labor that you were coming! I couldn’t have been more excited. When I met you for the very first time Henry, I fell in love instantly.

When I first came to visit, mommy said you never kept quiet through any meal, but when I held you over lunch, you slept for the whole time and we were all amazed. I think I knew then that we had a special bond. 

You know what one of my favorite things in the world is? Putting you to sleep. I love singing to you, and talking to you and spending some alone time, where for those 45 minutes, you’re all mine. 

Henry, I wish I could be there with you for this very special day. I hope you, mommy and daddy know just how happy I am that you are here and a part of my life. 

You’ve been smiling since you were two months old, and I hope you never stop. 

I love you my Henry.

Love always,

Your Aunt Gaby
