And One to Grow On


My sweet baby Soren turned 1 yesterday. A bitter sweet day, I have to say. He is our last, so seeing him grow up is a bit sad...and yet thrilling. He is such a happy, loving, endearing babe, I feel so fortunate to be his mama. So, at one, he is crawling--the same funny crawl that his sister did. He loves balls, rough-housing, big kids, the grocery store cart, climbing stairs, books, his sister, sleeping swaddled, anything he can put in his mouth, bare feet, and saying "that." He doesn't love getting dressed, wearing hats, sleeping alone, or the car seat. He is the boy I always dreamed of, but 100 times better than I could have imagined. His Papi and I are sleep deprived, usually covered in food, up to our eyeballs in diapers, and usually embarrassed in restaurants, but...loving every minute of it!
Happy Birthday Sory! I love you!

He is so beautiful, Linde! I haven't seen him since he was a roly-poly 3-month-old ... and now he's so big and grown-up. You are very privileged to have him and Sory is privileged to belong to you. Love! Jamie
