I think you were getting a cold on the actual day of your birthday. We stayed home, other than your year one check up. We played with your animals and I took lots of pictures in the playroom. Definitely one of your spots in the house. If you only knew how to climb down the stairs safely we would let you hang out there all the time .
You have a fuzzy head and love to snuggle. You have only grown more bear like as you grow older much to our delight.
Things have been stressful but you have it doesn't seem to have affected you in the slightest thankfully. We have changed up your diet to include lots more fat and it is helping.
Last year we watched from the hospital right after you were born. My eyes never even looked at the screen. My family was there, helping me and helping with the kids. The very first my mom said after you were born was "He is one lucky baby" thus naming you and anointing you. My best friend, who normally lives over a thousand miles away, miraculously showed up at the hospital too, just in time to meet him on his birthday.
One year later, the day was much less exhausting and thrilling but I am reminded of how we are the lucky ones and how much he has added to our lives.
