Let me start with the most cliche things a mom can say when that first birthday rolls around. I can't believe it has already been a year, but at the same time, it feels like he has always been a part of our family. This little bottle of sunshine fit right into our family right from the start and brings sunshine to each and every one of our lives on a daily basis. His smile melts my heart a million times over and his giggle is absolutely intoxicating. This little boy has shown me what it truly means to be happy with his bubbly attitude each and every day (even on the days he isn't feeling well). Sure he has his grumpy moments, but they don't last. He just can't help it.
To my sunshine Henry, you - are one year old. love your mama A LOT, but think dada is pretty funny too. prefer to stand to eat, even though it scares the crap out of mama (and, ahem, isn't allowed). are literally always moving; you cruise around the house, crawl in three different ways (all hilarious to watch), climb up onto furniture, and even roll around and kick the sides of your crib at night. still sleep in mama's room. you prefer fruits to any other foods, but will eat just about anything. have been weaned, and didn't have tooo much trouble doing so. aren't walking or standing solo yet, you think it is way too funny when we try. have the most precious arrangement of teeth (6 and counting) I have ever seen. you say "mama," "dada," and "oh, wow!" you love, LOVE playing with Emmet, you fuss until he wakes up and love to get into his business all. the. time. you are dearly loved by all of us.
