His First Birthday

Happy birthday to our sweet, happy boy!

Happy first birthday to our boy

This past year flew by so fast.

Newborn baby's first weeks at home

Wasn’t he just born?

At one year old he’s an adventurous climber and explorer, yet coordinated and steady on his feet…

Loves music and dancing…

Crazy about carrying, dropping, and throwing (!!!) balls…

He loves playing outside and exploring the natural world (i.e. picking up rocks, trying to eat acorns, and carrying around little sticks or leaves)…

Curious about food preparation and cooking, which means he’s always near our side (and wanting us to hold him) when we’re working in the kitchen…

Loves to eat everything, although he’s particularly partial to braised meats, fresh fruits, and greens sautéed with garlic…

Skilled at drinking from a straw and enjoys blowing bubbles in between sips…

Chats all day long (no surprise there!), though we’re just starting to understand snippets of what he’s saying. He now clearly enunciates the words mom-mom, dad, big sister’s name, up, ba (for, you guessed it, ball), more, and done…

Loving and cuddly, he adores running towards us with his arms outstretched, ready to give us hugs. (He also gets terribly affronted if Daddy doesn’t pick him up the moment he walks in the door after work. How dare Daddy try to put down his bag first!)

His world revolves around observing and playing with big sister, and he wants to do everything she finds interesting…

Happy birthday, sweet boy! We so love you.

Love,
Mama
