Exactly one month ago this sweet boy turned one! The first week we brought you home from the hospital I remember thinking how far away this day seemed, and now we're here. You bring such joy to our family. You make us all laugh with your determination to communicate about the things you love and want, and melt our hearts with your sweet kisses and snuggles.
We celebrated by spoiling you with your very own cake! You were quite delicate with it at first, but after you decided it tasted good, you dug right in. You loved it so much you decided that if it was good enough for your tummy it was good enough for your hair! Again, one of the many ways you make us all laugh. Grandma and Grandpa T. gave you a Jeep, Grandma and Grandpa M. gave you some Eagles Gear and we gave you a Ballapalooza! Happy First Birthday Ryan!
Now for some fun facts:
You sleep through the night.
You eat from the table, meaning anything we eat, you want it too!
You love your bottle, 3x per day at that.
You take one nap a day.
You get excited when Zach, Kate and Dad come home from school and work.
You love to empty every cupboard and drawer you can reach.
You have mastered the stairs.
You have a little small case of "stranger danger".
You brush your teeth, making daddy proud.
You love Zach's basketball and his hoop, if I had the energy to lift you up over and over again, you would shoot hoops all day!
And you started to dance, bouncing your knees up and down. It is the cutest thing ever! You have rhythm already!
