The anniversary of the day we became a family of FIVE!

Oh my goodness...How did 8 months (he was a month early, remember!?) go so slow but 12 months FLEW right by!? Is there a time machine out there to go back to this day one year ago!? Ahh, what I would give for sleepless nights, around the clock pumping, and the endless newborn cuddles. Do I sound completely crazy yet!? I have dreaded having to write this post for the last year. I don't want my baby to be ONE already.

There is a knot in my stomach as I type all this. I have said it probably 100 times since he was born but I will say it again, he has made our family and my heart complete. Watching him with his brother and sister melts me to mush. They LOVE their little brother to the moon and back. Oh and let's not forgot what a daddy's boy he has become. If Matt is around, this mama is chopped liver, haha! I know it is normal especially since he is with me ALL the time. I get my cuddles during the day so I am not complaining...well maybe a little! He is not walking but cruising along furniture at high speeds. I am totally not rushing it. Once he is walking that will make him an official toddler and my heart just can't handle that yet!

This boy L-O-V-E-S food...totally our kid, haha! He is on all BIG boy food. He loves plain noodles, chicken tenders, grilled cheese, sweet potatoes (I bake them and cut into chunks), carrots, green beans, yogurt, bananas, Go Go Squeeze, oatmeal, and waffles. He has been enjoying all the fresh fruit we have been eating lately too. He still only has the two bottom teeth. Those top ones are right there but just not breaking through. He will still be getting breast milk for a few more weeks but we have been working on using a cup. He is not a fan of anything we have put in it. He knows how to drink from it but will just let whatever is in it dribble back out of his mouth. Silly boy!

His 1 year check up is next Thursday so I will do another post with the stats from that. I will also hopefully have a few sneak peeks of his 1 year photo shoot that we are doing this Sunday. 

Happy 1st Birthday, my sweet baby boy! 
Mommy, Daddy, LoLo and Sissy love you so very much!

Happy birthday to your little man. :)

That first year for Zeva went by really quick too. I can't believe how much she's blossomed since then though. I have a hard time remembering she's still less than two years old now. She's into everything.

Her brothers spoil her, and like your son, when her Daddy walks in the door I definitely become chop liver too.
