Our Favorite Little Mister Turns ONE!: Happy Birthday

May 26, 2016 at 12:25 a.m. my heart skipped a beat as I held you in my arms for the first time.  I was instantly in love with your little face, as I was already in love with you from your kicks and wiggles from the last 9 months in my belly.  You go by many names, among which are B4, Beckers, Little Mister, Stinkeroo, and Bear.  Your 3 siblings absolutely adore you.  You are the most cuddly, sweet, even-keeled little boy.  God must have told you that as the 4th child, you needed to be an easy one, and I am so thankful for that.

I can’t believe you are already 1 year old today!  You crawl everywhere, furniture surf, (you aren’t quite ready to let go, but you are so close!), eat everything I give you, and only really dislike a few things.  Your favorite foods are bananas, yogurt bites, and anything with cheese. You have six teeth, but I think another one is coming soon.  You say bye-bye, Da-da, Nigh-night, and point at everything that you find interesting.  You have such a funny sense of humor and purposefully try to make us laugh at things you do.  You love to copy sounds you hear and gestures people do to you.

I love you so much little boy. Happy Birthday.
