Happy one year birthday, Little Man! As this is the last of the Canon Chronicles, indulge me while we take a little 12-month trip down memory lane…
Once upon a midnight dreary, you entered this world – a force to be reckoned with you were!*
* = Actually, it was 3:05 in the afternoon. And quite reasonably, we may have heard the audible screams of WHATCHU DOIN’ PLUCKING ME OUT OF THIS HERE COZY WOMB?! soon after the c-section. It was after all, 42 weeks of pregnancy and 45 hours of induction and labor, so you may not have been planning to ever leave Mama’s body. Just sayin’.
We practiced our shushing skills on you…
And we stared at your beauty …just because we could.
Mama made both you and the HBH dress up like the honey-licious fools that you are for Halloween – and God said that it was good.
Occasionally you napped (and I refrained from kissing those lips, over and over again)…
And occasionally you and your squeezable, perfect little cheeks, were contemplative.
You pretty much thought that Ooh, baby, heaven is a place on earth when solid foods entered your world…
You were a baby-model in our own living room…
And you discovered the goodness called POTS AND PANS in the comfort of our kitchen.
Pretty soon you were crawling everywhere, and discovering all the hidden nooks and crannies, and you soon realized that walking with your walker was pretty much the coolest thing ever.
You soon realized that peek-a-boo is absolutely fantastic.
And then, just like that, one year and a million memories later, you were like a grown-up little 12-month-old man. We couldn’t help but wonder, how’d that happen already?
I love you, Baby – thank YOU for a most joyous year! xoxo, mama.
