Our little man is 1!!! I swear that both Russ and I thought he looked different when he woke up last Saturday. He looked more toddlerish (if that's even a word). And he has been up to so much! About a week before his birthday, he started to crawl, took his first steps, perfected waving bye bye, blows kisses, gives kisses and hugs, and started to grab his belly when you ask where it is. It's as if he knew that he was about to turn 1, and realized he needed to get movin on these milestones :) He's developing quite the personality, quite the flirt when it comes to the ladies. He gets all shy and crinkles his nose...SO CUTE! He loves to be outside...definitely his mom and dad's son when it comes to that! It's hard to describe just how much I love this little man of ours. Sometimes I just can't stand it!

And now...I give you a year in onesies!!

I am SO glad we decided to do this! It's amazing how much they change in just a short year!

We have been quite the busy little bees of late, and this weekend is going to be even crazier! My little brother is getting married to the best girl on Friday. Saturday is Addison's 1 year Birthday Party!! Saturday night a good friend of ours is getting married, and then Sunday the little man FINALLY gets dedicated. My entire family will be in town, and Russ' parents will be as well! So many people, so many things to much fun! I've done a lot of crafting for both the wedding and the party, so I promise to share some photos with you next week.

Until then...enjoy your week and weekend.

To my sweet 11 month old baby boy...

You are such a joy. Have I told you that lately? Your beaming smile from ear to ear is completely contagious. I love watching you discover the world around you. You love to be outside, playing with leaves and grass. I love the way you look at leaves and birds as if they're the most amazing thing you've ever seen. You're still not doing the official "crawl" yet, but you're pulling up on EVERYTHING (even the things we'd rather you didn't...ha), and "cruising" around the house. We're all pretty convinced you're going to take those first steps by yourself soon! You absolutely LOVE your puppies Bodhi and Jake. You love playing peek-a-boo with Jake, and it is the cutest thing to see you give Bodhi a hug when we ask you to. I love watching your face light up when your Daddy comes love him so much! Every day I thank God for the blessing that you are to your Dad and I. We cannot believe that in a few short weeks you will be one year old!
I love you
I love you
I love you!
