Well this little lump of love turned one today.  

So that was a very fast year!!!! 

This is how we felt about spending his birthday in the church nursery.

He has a tiny bit of separation anxiety.  And by Tiny I mean he hates everyone but his parents.  ha! 

Will Holden you are a BIG ole boy! I will find out for sure tomorrow but I'm thinking you are around 26 pounds.  You wear an 18 month and sometimes 24 month.  You wear a size 4 diaper and a size 5 shoe.  I've lost count but I think you have 10-12 teeth.  

You suck your thumb and only if you have a blanky to hold.  Sweetest thing ever.  

You are a rockstar sleeper! You sleep a good 12 hours or more each night and take a 2 hour morning nap. I wish you could have an afternoon nap but we are always running school pick up then.  Because you don't get an afternoon nap - you go to bed around 6 or 6:30.  Mostly because you are usually rubbing your eyes and crying during dinner.  

Look how you have grown.  You will eat most anything.  You still aren't the biggest fan of solid veggies and fruits - just purees.  But you are working on it slowly.  Eggs are your favorite and yogurt.  You also go crazy for refried beans if we are eating at a Mexican restaurant.  

I didn't get a picture every month but this is one of my favorite things - watching you grow.  I joke that I hope you will have a good sense of humor and want to recreate this for your high school graduation.  But maybe with shorts instead of a diaper.  ha! 

We are having a party in two weeks because it was just easier to put his party and his baby dedication all in one weekend so the grandparents only had to make one trip.  Add in that it's Mother's Day, my MIL's birthday and I'm speaking at a church event and it will be one full weekend! 

I felt like you still needed a cupcake to celebrate the day! 

Let's just say he liked the cupcake! 

"Where has this been all my life?" 

All three of my babies on their first birthday.  Some how I have a green eyed child, a brown eyed child and a blue eyed child.  But they all have the same nose and mouth.  And cheeks.  :-)

These sisters of yours are just insanely crazy over you Will Holden.  I wish you knew how much they adore you.  I don't know if you will ever walk because they carry you everywhere.  And do everything for you.  I hope they will always love you and take care of you.  And you just light up over them.  You lay your head on their shoulders and say "AWWWW" in the sweetest way all the time.  

I can't wait to see what the next year will hold for you! I imagine I will be really tired by this time next year.  But Happy! And so thankful that you joined our family! 

I love you! Happy first birthday!
