1 Year Ago/1 Year Old

video

1 year ago I woke up in the middle of the night to roll over and my water broke. That was the begining of all the crazy fun that has followed. 1 year ago we received a new baby in our lives, and nothing has been the same since. We have had the pleasure of watching him and guiding him for the 1st year of his life, and though some things have been a bit of a struggle along the way, we most definately look forward to helping, teaching, and playing with him for all the years to come.

It's wierd to think that it's been a whole year. It doesn't seem that long, yet it seems he's always been with us. It's even wierder to think that WE have a 1 year old. 1 year ago he was learning to open his eyes, to eat, and to sleep. Now he has 5 teeth with a 6th coming soon. He can crawl very fast, and is learning to trust himself with walking, which he can and does sometimes. He is still learning to talk and notices a good many things around him.

1 year ago he was just barely born. 1 year old today, he get's to experience his first birthday, his first cake (which is also his first sugar besides fruit), and it's still only the begining of what he will get to experience and what will come for all of us. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAPHETH!

I'm a Crossing Guard Too!


Since Japheth has changed his schedual he doesn't sleep during my morning shift any more. So we've had to find something else to do. Sometimes the Burge's (the people who let me park in their driveway) take him in to play. But this is what we do in the mornings now since it's still too cold to just have him in the stroller.

The Duck Pucker!



Well he doesn't do it as much as he used to, but here it is. He usually does it now when I tell him to leave something alone! Like the movie he's holding that he's not suppose to get into.
