Oh, sometimes I wish he was this little again!

Oh wow! One year ago today our little angel entered our lives and changed them forever! It has been the greatest year of my life! I never would have thought this little being would bring so much happiness to me each and every day with the little wonderful things he does. I feel so blessed to be the mother of this gorgeous child and am grateful he has already survived one year of my motherhood! He is so fun to be around and I miss him terribly when we are apart. Everyday I find myself just watching him in awe and wonder and just soak in the precious moments of being his mother. I can't believe how much I love him!

He has got quite the personality and I thought I'd list some fun things he likes, etc.


Pushing or dragging things around, making spitting noises, playing in water, pineapple, sitting forward in the car, imitating you laughing, swinging at the park, to walk holding hands, watching cars or planes, Curious George, Yo Gabba Gabba, crawling super fast, helping with the dishes, giving Mom and Dad kisses and hugs (OK I love them!), pushing cars with wheels on any surface including Dad, getting tickled, funny noises, to scream and see if he gets in trouble, and playing with other kids.


His ears under water, shut doors, Mommy's eyes closed, shouting "Hey", things that don't move when pushed, rocky cement (just crawls on his hands and toes, no knees), getting his diaper changed, being alone, tub water being shut off, and the list may go on.

He was born at 10:07 a.m. after 2 hours of pushing, and being suctioned out with a vacuum, twice. His head had too much hair so it popped off once. He weighed 8 lbs. 1 oz. and was 20 inches long. Now at one year, he is in the 5th percentile at about 19 lbs. and 27 inches. (I think, we'll find out tomorrow).

We absolutely adore him and can't wait for another year of wonderful miracles.

My Graduation Present...

So for graduating college my Grandma Short planned a week in Cancun for me with her, my mom, and Graham. We stayed in this really nice resort called the Mayan palace. It had a TON of pools that had several spots shallow enough that Graham could just crawl around and he LOVED it. He loved playing in the sand and proves to live up to "being a boy" and accumulating the dirt and grunge necessary for that. Grandmas spoiled him with Oreos (picture). I love the little trail he made crawling in the sand. Then as we waited to check out Grandma toted him around on her bag and he loved it, the little Prince. He was so much fun and he was quite the entertainer everywhere we went. I sure love this little boy!
