12 months

He's one.
Officially.
I can't believe it.
12 months old...

It seems like yesterday that I was heading to the hospital to have him... (Running late for my C-section - of course. Because I can't be on time. Ever. Ugh.)

From the first moment I saw him, my heart melted into a big puddle in the floor.
He was beautiful and perfect.
It took exactly one look into those sweet blue eyes for me to fall completely and hopelessly in love.


He was a little part of me, a little part of David, and an amazing gift from our Heavenly Father. I felt like the luckiest girl on earth.

His sweet, laid-back disposition has always made caring for him so easy. Even the nurses in the hospital mentioned his easy-going nature.

The sleepless early days quickly turned into routine-filled months. And - in nothing short of light speed - those precious, live-changing months became our first year with the sweetest little boy I know.


(May 2009)

Watching him grow and change has been such a blessing.
His little blue eyes are constantly taking in the world around him. There's nothing sweeter than watching my little guy experience life's simple moments for the first time.

And you can't deny the incredible sweetness of those smooshy toes.

He loves to cuddle, loves to play, and reaaally loves to eat.

And there's just no one on earth can make him giggle and smile like his big sister.

(May 2009)

His quick smile makes my heart jump.

(August 2009)

I just plain adore him.

Happy Birthday, Little Man.
You are a joy.
How thankful I am for you!
I can't wait to see what God has in store for you!

This post is so precious. He is so absolutely adorable and his little face melts my heart and I'm not even his Momma.

I still can't believe Tyson is 1 and he is 16 months now. It kills me.

Oh, and Tyson's little toes like Charlie's are all smooshy and make me smile every time I look at them. LOVE them.

p.s. you look so beautiful in that picture right after he was born. i know you said it was a c-section but still, that is so not fair to look that good after bringing a baby into the world! : )

No way is he a year! I remember so well last year, praying for you right before Thanksgiving as you went in to the hospital. And, oh, is he ever just a lump of sugar. That smile is going to make more than a few hearts swoon. :)
