My baby boy just turned ONE!! (insert all the happy and teary-eyed emojis here)

I honestly feel like I was being a bit weird about taking the one year baby photos. We missed it by a week or so and I was in no rush to do it on time like I had been for all of the other months. I think it’s because I just wasn’t ready for this first year to be over yet. It felt like I hadn’t done all of the things I hoped to documentary-wise, even though I have done a ton! But there is so much I missed. I know it’s impossible, but it really flew by way faster than I imagined it would. Watching him grow and learn has been amazing, and we are so happy but it is bitter-sweet. I know you understand if you’ve been through it.

 He’s all over the place these days, so getting him to sit still for these was not happening! But that’s ok, we got a quick few fun ones.

We tried to get him to stand next to his fox but that didn’t work out too well, he was immediately trying to run away!

Then he tried to crawl all over me, ripped his tie off then attempted to climb his dresser. But it was all fun and we got some pretty cute photos out of it anyway :)

I feel like he has done and learned so much over the past few month I cannot even begin to list it. He’s eating everything, playing with everything. His aunt got him a little horse for his birthday that he absolutely loves riding! Babbling all the time, which makes us laugh, but really only says “Mama” over and over (fine by me!).

His excitement when trying to escape is pretty cute.

He really was very skeptical of this tie thing…. it did not last long.

And then he spotted the dresser drawers…

The two below faces are the best. First is his mischievous smile. Second, is what we were calling the “mean face” but then realized it is actually his deep concentration face for when he is very determined to do something! Funny now, but we hope he grows out of that one!

This one makes me laugh because all I can think of is that scene in Ace Venture… if you know what I mean I love you ;)

He had his first trip to the beach right after he turned one, which after the initial hour or so of trying to figure out what was going on, he ended up thoroughly enjoying. He loved the ocean, even tried to crawl right into it all fast like a baby turtle going out to sea, lol.

What an amazing year with this little man. Words really cannot describe it. Like I said is one of these earlier month posts, you just don’t know until you know. We love you so much and are excited to see what the future holds for you!
