At 12:44 this morning, my little man will be one. Gone are the days where we counted his age by weeks and then months. He’s now a year old toddler with a personality much bigger than his tiny frame. When I took him to the doctor on Wednesday, he weighed a mere 17 pounds 5 ounces. It is a challenge to get him to sit still long enough to eat, much less make sure he doesn’t share all of his food with the dog (who has gained two pounds since Jackson began solids).
This year has gone by faster than I can ever recall in my 30 years. Exactly one year ago today, I was pacing around the house in labor and waiting for my Mom’s plane to land. We were so lucky that everything from that night turned in our favor, I still thank God for that night. Everything that could have gone terribly wrong, did not.
We are going to celebrate his big day at our home on Sunday with 10 of his closest buddies and their families. I’ve slacked on his baby book, but decided to make a baby video for his first year. I’ve included it in this post, just a warning it is 19 minutes long, so the only people who will probably watch the whole thing are his Grandparents 🙂
Happy Birthday, Little Man!
