This is picture overload and I know that and am totally okay with it because your baby only turns one once! I can not believe it is your birthday sweet King. You have brought so much love and joy to our home. You are getting big so fast and I am not ready for it. You love goldfish crackers, milk, and anything with sugar in it. You crawl so fast that we feel like we have to run to catch you. You are a thrill seeker and love to be thrown up in the air or scared from us hiding from you. You still don’t quite sleep through the night, you wake up for a binkie. You love your binkie. We only let you have it when you sleep and you love to find them when we aren’t looking. You love any toys that make noise and have lights on them. You haven’t started walking yet, but will walk along furniture and crawl as fast as you can to get what you want. You are adventurous and curious. You love to open cabinets, doors, and drawers to see what is inside. We love the way you point with a fist turned sideways. You love your daddy and grandpa more than anyone else. You scream da-da looking for dad all day and get so excited when you see him come through the door. You love to pull yourself up to uncle Matt’s wheelchair and make him crazy. Emptying out plastic baggies is your speciality and keeps you busy for a few minutes. Church is a challenge with you because you hate to hold still. You love to constantly move. Baths are still your favorite part of the day. You haven’t been eating very good for mom and dad, unless it is sugar, then you will eat all of it. You love beans, gingersnap cookies from grandma, and fish crackers. Your hugs and loves are our favorite part of the day. Somedays you give them out a lot, other days you make us work for them. Standing up to your tee-pee and looking through the window makes you laugh so hard. You love to be tickled and laugh with your sweet crooked teeth poking out. Throwing fits to get what you want is on the daily and mom just laughs at you because you get so angry. You always wake up so happy if you get enough sleep and love to chat first thing in the morning!
We love you so much King. We can’t wait to see the person you become and grow up to be! HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY KING!!
