Happy 1st Birthday, C!!!
Forgive the lack of a “Things I Love Thursday” post. Today is C’s birthday and it’s been a busy one. For starters, I apparently turned off the alarm in my sleep and caused us to all oversleep this morning. That completely dashed my plans to make pancakes for the boys, as well as any hope of me washing my hair before work. Gross, no? I’m not one of those people that can do the whole wash-every-other-day thing.
Back to the point, though – C is one! I can hardly believe it. I can remember our time in the hospital like it was yesterday. I remember the emotions I felt the night before, worrying at how J would handle the change, and how our family dynamic would change; the nervousness as we checked in to the hospital; the awe when we first saw C’s little face.
Our little man went from this:
in the blink of an eye.
C’s walking all over the place and says, “Mama” and “Dada” on a regular basis. He wants to eat what we’re eating and do what we’re doing, and right now he is completely fascinated with the fridge and with Josie’s dog food (I’m constantly on the lookout if he’s in the kitchen, because if I’m not careful he’ll have a piece of dog food ready to chomp on). He is independent and assertive, and smiles almost all the time – unless he’s hungry, and then he’s screaming. :) His personality is starting to show more and more each day, and we’re so thankful we get to watch it all unfold.
