" I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that LOVING is the best calorie burner. I believe kissing. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." ~Audrey Hepburn

1 Year!

***Birthday pictures to come, blogger is having a hard time loading pictures today ):

The last year, has by far been one of the best years of my life. Starting a family with my very best friend and becoming parents is better than I ever dreamed.

My heart is full of pure and unconditional love.

You are still my baby, but such a big boy.

You like to go 'walking' while holding on to my fingers. You aren't quite ready to take your first lone steps yet and thats okay. I smile knowing that something as little as my finger, a tiny part of me, is all you need to feel secure.

You like when I do laundry, you will help me load the washer, push the buttons and then watch the clothes go round and round.

You army crawl like nobody's business, AKA - you are freaking fast! You can crawl like a big boy, but aren't NEARLY as fast, so you'll start up on you knees than quickly go down to your belly.

You are having a hard time drinking milk out of a sippy cup and it is scaring me. You only get one bottle a day and will only drink water from your sippy cup. Hopefully we will come up with something!

You are the best hugger in the world! Anytime we ask for a hug, you will willingly give it.

You love the air vents. You know when they turn on and you will crawl over to the vent and lay your head down on it or sit on it.

You always look at me for approval - I love it!

You can clap and it is darling. Yesterday I got home work and said "Mommy's home!" you looked up at me and started claping! HAHA

You have four top teeth and four bottom teeth.

You still love reading with me. If I sit in the rocker in your room, you know it is time to read and will crawl over to me to pick you up to read a story.

You love blueberry waffels, yogurt, mac n cheese and anything CARB!

You are VERY selective with your kisses, but when I get one, it melts my heart.

You love Boggs (your Panda) with all your heart, he gets hugs and kisses every night.

We took your binky away, we are on day 3 and you are doing WONDERFUL! I think it is harder for me than for you - I miss seeing you laying in your crib sucking on it like an infant.

You LOVE dogs! And think Tank and Otis are HILARIOUS!!!

You are such a happy boy. Everyone always asks me "Is he always this happy?" and you are! I am so lucky to call you mine.
