Mom and dad don’t ever want to forget this amazing stage. All of the tiny details, faces, emotions, and curiosities that belong to their baby boy, just before he turned one. The way he crawled around the house – pulling himself up on everything. The way he hid in a big empty box and suddenly became the happiest kid on the planet. The way he looked in his favorite (adorably tiny) Pirates cap. The way he lit up when it was time to go to the park and hop in his wagon. I loved watching it all unfold. The three of them together is, well, pretty perfect. There is a love in this family that we should all be lucky enough to have in our lives.
I hope that this little guy had the best first birthday ever and that his mom and dad held him a little longer the night before, knowing that year two is going to fly by as well.
