i have had so much fun watching your personality grow and develop over the past year. you are your own little person, full of energy and passion for things you like (and don't like). you are rough and tumble through and through, but still enjoy sweet, cuddly moments with your mom and dad. i hope you don't ever lose that part, because i love it!
i am realizing that you really aren't a baby anymore. i have heard your speech explode tremendously this past year. i enjoy watching and listening to you make up your own stories with blocks, cars and whatever else you manage to dig up around the house. you have mastered the potty. you eat more than your big sister (sometimes me!). you like to jump off things. you can set the table, get your own water, and bring your food to the table. the road to independence is clearly in front of you and you are taking it in strides.
my heart overflows with love for you sweet boy. happy birthday!
