I can't believe my little boy is one year old today. I just can't wrap my head around it. Where did all the time go?? It's been a FUN and exciting year. In his short year of life my little man has been through a lot but he is a strong little boy with so much life and energy. He is such a unique little boy with a HUGE personality.


This first year of your life has been the best year of my life I can't imagine my life without you in it. I feel God put me on this earth just for you and to be your Mom. I feel so fortunate to have been able to stay home with you this year and see you grow and learn. You are a funny little boy. You march at the beat of your own drum and that is just one of the things that I love about you. You lack of sight doesn't stop you from exploring and learning new things. You are very trusting. Sometimes a little two trusting. You love to play your little toy piano. You love all your light toys so much that you at times let them lay right on your face for long periods of time. The light draws you in. You also love to bounce. So much in fact that we can't get you to stop. You bounce when your in your crib, being held, sitting down, in your high chair.

You are 20.3 pounds and 29 inches long. You love to eat. You love mac and cheese, spaghetti, peas, beans... Pretty much everything but if it's hot even just a little you will spit it out. You like your food cold. Hmmm strange. You can hold your sippy cup really good now. I'm so proud of you.

You say Mama and Dada but you don't really know what you are saying yet. You just learned to clap and when I say YAY you start to. It's really cute. In the past month you learned to sit. Karla your therapist works with you a lot on crawling. You can get up on all 4's but just bounce.

Everything goes in your mouth. You have two teeth on the bottom, both fangs and the left top tooth. The right top tooth is close to coming through.
You're an easy baby... We are so lucky to have you. I just love every second I have with you.

Happy Birthday my big boy
