reflection starts so eary...





i can't believe my baby will be one. it's been a wonderful and beautiful year of growth for us both. we are so much stronger today that we were a year ago. now, we have you. we have watched you grow from helpless little baby who only cried and slept to the young toddler you are now. then, when we brought you home, we didn't know what to feed you let alone how much! holding you was like holding a loaf of bread. you simply didn't weigh much. over the months you grew and grew until now i see people take a second look when i say, "oh, he's only 11 months old." at 29, almost 30 pounds you out weigh your 3 year old cousin. with eyes wide open, you have opinions-i see you grab the cheese puff over the pumpkin bread. and already the temper tantrums are starting; crying because dad is washing your hair and you want to play with the little floating fish. ahhh diego, what will become of you?




this year of firsts, wow, what a blessing to be home and watch you grow. your first words, "dayeeee!!!" crawling, laughing, smiles, it's only days now when that first step will be taken. oh sure, you cruise around the house but you haven't quite let go yet. you know what? it's okay to grow up and walk, we are always going to be here for you...




happy birthday baby!
