And just like that.....

And just like that, it's been a year. Looking back in the rear view mirror at the last year, we see a "Baby on Board" sticker, we see a car seat, a baby in the car seat and baby's smiling face.

And just like that this little munchkin went from being a new born, to being an infant, to being a baby, to now a toddler! When did that happen? When did he start smiling, sitting up, pulling himself up to stand, cruising around, showing us his personality? I can so clearly picture walking into that hospital room last year, seeing the precious little face, tears in my eyes - tears of joy, love and mostly, gratitude. I'll always be thankful, and I'll always remember.

And just like that, it's been a year. Happy happy birthday R! Your squeals and giggles and smudgy sticky fingers, pudgy little toes, diapered butt and big blue eyes have made our house a home. We love you, no matter what. Always know that.....
