Happy birthday to my sweet grandson! Jacob Steil Special, it's your first birthday and I hope you know how much Gramps & Grammy love you. Your birth changed me. It made me a grandmother, of course, but it also reinvented me. I didn't know I could love you as much as I do. My heart aches when I know it's going to be awhile until I see you, and I can only go 3-4 weeks (max!) between visits. You are so handsome, and your giggle is so cute. It has been an honor to be a small part of your first year on beautiful Earth. You have brought us so much joy. Your little personality is really sweet and I think you are a perfect combination of your devoted, caring parents. You have a leg up with those parents, and the life that is yours, young man, and I hope you always use that to your advantage. I'll be watching, and reminding you. Anyway, you make my heart light and you make all my worries float away. Happy brithday, sweetie pie. Here are a few of my favorite pictures, taken by me, over the past year. Bye bye. Grammy loves you.
