Lots of firsts


We've had lots of firsts around here this month!

First yummy taste of birthday cake at his very first birthday party.

First haircut by his wonderful Aunt Lissa.

First nights without Mommy or Daddy.

First movie in a movie theater. (I don't have a picture of this one - but it was an adventure!)

First steps! (See the video in my last post)

Can someone tell me where my snuggly baby went and where this big independent boy came from? Every once in a while I still get a peek at that baby boy, when he just can't stand to not be in my arms while I cook dinner, or when he snuggles into my lap to watch a movie, or after we read books before naps.

Sometimes I miss him, the tiny helpless him.

But I can't imagine life without laughing at our big happy boy that is growing more and more into his personality every day.

I am so blessed to be his momma. I almost don't remember what it was like to not have him. I love him.

Big man walking!!

video

Our little guy finally decided to start walking on New Year's Eve! He was finally distracted enough by something to forget that he wasn't holding onto something :)

Excuse the poor video quality - this video is off my phone and we're having technical difficulties with our other video!
