Happy 1st Birthday my little boy. I can not believe you are one already. This year has flown by so incredibly fast and it really does feel just like yesterday that we brought you home. You are such a sweet and perfect addition to our little family and I am so so proud to be your mama. I love you an incredible amount. I think my heart might actually burst with love sometimes. I now know what people meant when they said that your heart will expand with love when you have a second.. and if that's the way you feel after each baby, we might be in trouble! ha! You are such a cuddly boy and ready with smiles for everyone. You are silly and have a funny little sense of humor, although this could be from always observing and watching your big brother's antics! And speaking of your big brother - you adore him and he adores you. I love watching the two of you together and that relationship forming. Seeing the love you two already have for each other has been one of my favorite things this past year. You love to hysterically giggle .. again, mostly at the silly things your brother does to make you laugh. You love to play peekaboo and you LOVE to dance.. any song with a beat will do but your favorite is 'uptown funk.' You love to pull all the books off the shelves (especially after I've just put them all back!) and you love to play with balls and throw them back and forth with us. You can spot one a mile away, pointing and saying 'ball ball ball' until we retrieve it for you and play. Otherwise, you love playing with anything your big brother has. You love to drink water out of a cup (I have to sometimes hide my own water around you unless I want to give it up!). And you call all drinks 'hot' .. your daddy taught you that coffee cups are 'hot' so now you've decided this is your word for drink and thirsty.. pointing to the sink and saying 'hot hot' until we pour you a cup of water. Your big brother thinks this is hilarious. You love blueberries and chicken but otherwise not a big eater (which is surprising considering your chubs!). You love the water and splashing in the tub. You like to give big kisses and wave and say 'hiiii' which you say when people are coming and going. You don't love to sleep and are up at night more times then I'd like to admit (sigh..). And you do not like sleeping in your crib.. which is ok, because time is going way to fast and I don't mind snuggling up with you while you're still so little and snuggly.
I could really go on and on. There is so much I could write about you. But I'll leave it at that and a few photos from your first year for now. I love you so so much and I am so honored to be your mom and get to watch you grow. Happy Birthday my little Liam. xoxo
