1-11-11 (one year later)

One year ago, I gave birth to the sweet baby boy. We have been so blessed to have him in our lives and welcomed him in our hearts. It's hard to believe that the months have flown by so quickly and our little man has turned 1 though! God bless his heart, he's giving me a run for my money. He's one little ball of energy and orneriness. Some mommas say, "oh, he's just being a boy." I'm not so sure. I think God's trying to teach me something.
He's delicious though. Pure sweetness through and through. I don't think you could count the amount of kisses he gets from all of us on a daily basis. And his little chuckle...oh my. It's garunteed to make you join in. We scoop him up regularly and kiss and tickle and tease. He's game. Any time. Any where.
He waves. And does high-five. And drives the car grocery carts. And plays soccer in the kitchen. If he can't find a ball, he'll make do with a small box. He climbs the stairs. He loves being outside and in the garage. He likes to pull dogs fur. He loves playing peek-a-boo and hide-and-seek. He hates his carseat when daddy is driving, but does fine when it's just momma. He calls for his sisters as soon as he wakes up. He's been walking since 10 months. He'll run towards you with arms outstretched for a hug. He likes playing with the "big kids" at church, but screams and sobs in the infant nursery. He knows how to charm ladies. He loves to hang out with daddy. He loves to pull his sister's hair but is learning that a gentle pat will suffice. He hates it when the girls cry, he runs to them and holds their hand and pats them. Ma-ma is only said in dire circumstances, but it can be said. Paper is made for shredding and magazines for tearing. The table is the incorrect spot for any item, everything must belong on the floor. Baby Einstein "Baby Noah" is a favorite. The dishwasher is his domain and you must not mess with him when he's in it. Or the fridge. He likes to go to bed between 8:15 and 8:45. No later please, or I will be a crab. 
Life is pretty great with our little family of 5. I know we wouldn't have it any other way.
