Every week I write A a letter. I’m not great about writing in his baby book, but this is something that I have tried to stick with. I don’t post about it on the blog b/c sometimes I have to write 4 weeks worth of entries in a row….. but nevertheless, it is something that I have enjoyed. This is my last letter to A about his first year. I thought I would share.
Today you are 1 year old son. One whole year! I can’t believe it. It feels like this year has slipped by and at the same time, I can’t remember life without you. Sometimes I still can’t believe you are mine. We wished, hoped and prayed for so long for your and it seems like I blinked and the year is gone.
You are such a little person now. So interactive and into everything. You mimic me and try to say the words I’m saying but everything just jumbles out. You hug when asked. You offer kisses. You climb into my lap. You love us. Whenever I tell you no about something, like the cat food, you just inch closer and closer to it, like I won’t notice, then grab some and offer it to me.
Mama always says “Oh shoot when you do something wrong like knock over the cat’s water and you’ve taken to saying that phrase!
You favorite new thing is when I blow on your food when its too hot. When I give it to you, you blow on it as well.
We went to the doctor for your check up yesterday and she was blown away by your development. She kept saying, “Usually they don’t do that until 15 months… 18 months”. I was so proud of you.
You know two signs, more and all done and we are working on please.
You are working on FOUR molars right now and I just feel awful for you. The other night you woke up so upset I wanted to go to the hospital b/c I had never heard you cry like that. The only thing that made it better was watching Yo Gabba Gabba, your favorite show.
It was your birthday party this past weekend and you had so much fun. You were a social butterfly and entertained everyone. You are outgoing, have no fear, and are so fun and loving even with strangers. Your Nahna, Grandpa, Nonna, and Aunt CeCe were all here for your party too.
I just feel so lucky to have been choosen to be your mom. You have brought so much light and love into our hearts I can’t imagine our life without you.
I can’t wait to see what the next year will bring our little family.
