Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, sweet baby boy!

You are a year old today and I can't really believe it!
I was too tired to notice at the time fortunate enough to be up with you this morning at the exact time you were born on this day exactly one year ago. 3:51 AM

I couldn't help but think back to that morning when my suspicions were proved right, when the doctor told us, 'It's a boy!'
And boy are you! 
Having a sister to compare you to, I see how much of a boy you are. 
You are so playful and love to climb on any everything!
You love to study and see how things work, taking them apart and trying to put it back together.
Your favorite thing to do is wrestle with daddy. 
And pretty sure it's a favorite thing of his too.

You have stopped bitting, for the most part anyway. 
The only time I still get teeth in the flesh is when you are hungry and I've let too much time pass before feeding you.
Speaking of teeth, you've had 5, yes 5, teeth come in all at once! 
You have four on top and three on the bottom.
We didn't notice them until they broke through the gums.
And then it made sense why you weren't sleeping so well night after night.
In the words of your big sister 'Ah, poor fing!'

I love these pictures that your daddy took to capture your little self at 12 months old!
They completely capture all your expressions and personality.
You are so fun, playful, and ornery!

There is one thing about your personality I hope you will grow to control as you seek the Lord and desire to honor Him.
That is, that you have a temper. A quick temper and it comes out of no where sometimes!
You can be so upset you are inconsolable and we either try to distract you or just let you work it out on your own.

I love how you adore your sister and crack up at her silliness all day long.
Of course you know how {or you don't realize you are doing it} to push her buttons.
And how to pull her hair. Ouch!
But you two are growing into good friends. You love each other and I pray that only continues to be the foundation of your relationship together.

A couple of your favorite things to do right now is say and give 'kisses'! You smack your lips and you are just so adorable I could eat you up.
Your daddy taught you how to say 'booya' and you say it
You say 'sissy' and 'Evie', mommy and daddy.
And it sounds like you are trying to say things that we say, your just learning so much everyday!
You know the sign for 'milk' and you use it correctly, but you also use it to say that you want more of something. It's the only sign you know so far.
You're a chatter box and you like to hold things up for us to see and you jabber about it like you are telling us all about it.

You are absolutely the sweetest bundle of baby one year old boy and we are so grateful that you are our son. We love watching you grow up and learn. We love you so much, sweetheart!

Happy 1st birthday, Little Dude!
