Speaking of going by quickly... where did the year go? Where did my baby go? and who would have thought I could love this toddler so much - who is now in his place? Pretty much all I knew when we brought you home from the hospital was that I was coming home with a baby (a really adorable baby that I fell in love with when I first laid eyes on him)... what i didn't know is that wasn't even the HALF of what I would be in for in the year to come. We have made it through sleepless nights, fevers, ear infections, teething, diaper rashes, major blowouts, breast feeding, solid feeding, playdates, moms group, daycare and oh my goodness - so much more. I have learned MORE in this year than i ever learned in school... you are the ultimate "on the job" training. I have been challenged more than I ever thought I could be... but I also have been rewarded beyond compare. One smile, one giggle, one kiss.... is all it takes to forget about any sleepless nights that i ever endured.
More later - mommy is tired... its been a long day... a long day that went by too quickly...
Happy birthday sweet love.
also - more zoo photos to come.
