I can't believe you are already one! When did you get to be so big? It seems like just yesterday that we brought you home from the hospital. You were such a cute little guy that I could just eat you up!
The first few weeks of your life are all a bit of a blur to me now, but what can you expect from a woman running on so little sleep?! I do remember that it was a bit of an adjustment to take care of you and your older brother, but before long we got things worked out.
It helped that you were such a good baby! You only cried when you had a good reason to, which I really appreciated.
It also helped that you slept a lot the first few months. :o)
Before long you were discovering the world around you. You were so alert and interested in the everything. It was so much fun when you started interacting with us. We loved to watch you smiling, cooing, and playing with toys.
Then came the stuffing of everything into your mouth... including your toes.
Before I knew it you were rolling over and getting into everything. You loved your newly found ability to get around by yourself and before long I caught you doing this:
Life got much more exciting for me when you started crawling and pulling yourself up! Every day was a new adventure.
We shared some fun adventures this year, didn't we?
Do you remember this Fall and how interesting you thought the leaves were? Of course we also discovered that they are not so tasty.
We had tons of fun celebrating holidays this year with our two boys. Remember Halloween? How I loved my little superman.
As winter approached we spent more time inside. I think you were mostly o.k. with that because you didn't really like the snow too much. (I did get you to smile for a picture though :o).
Now it seems that you have grown so big! (which probably has something to do with all the food you have been eating lately!) You have not only figured out this whole walking thing, you are practically running everywhere. I guess you are just trying to keep up with your older brother. I can tell the two of you are going to be great friends.
I am glad that I get to watch you grow and learn. It is so fun to watch you explore the world around you.
We love you so much and are glad that you joined our little family.
Yet Another Jay and Deb Production.
