To my sweet baby boy: You came into our lives January 30, 2018 at 5:10pm and forever filled our hearts. We were surprised when we learned you'd need to come two weeks early, but now that you're here I can't imagine spending a second more without your little hand in mine. Your pregnancy was the most empowering experience of my life and I loved getting to know you and feel the peace your spirit brought. I knew you were special from the start. Your birth was a magical, surreal experience that tested my strength and showed me just how strong the love of a mother, father, and husband can be. With your amazing dad by my side, we welcomed you into the world at 7 lbs 15 oz and 21.5 inches. We love every piece of you. I instantly fell in love with your chubby cheeks, pouty lips, bright blue eyes, little coos, and sweetest disposition. You stopped crying the second they put you on my chest and it felt like I was holding a little piece a heaven. In the past week, you've received more cuddles and loves than I thought possible and I promise you'll continue to be loved beyond compare your whole life. You have the kindest, most mellow temperament and I feel blessed to have such an angelic baby. Know how lucky you are to have the world's best dad. He loves you unconditionally and will do everything and anything to make our lives as joyful and blessed as humanly possible. In him you have a father, protector, mentor, friend, and example of all the things I hope we can teach you to be. Watching you two together fills spaces of my heart I didn't know were there. I am so grateful we get to be a family forever and am humbled to think Heavenly Father trusted us enough to send one of His sweetest spirits. Words can't describe my feelings for you, but know I love you with all my heart. You are forever my little angel, Jefferson Grant Smith.
