1 Year Photos

This boy is turning 1 a week from today!

My heart is sputtering praise and thankfulness and disbelief.

This boy is chubby thighs and dirty finger nails and gutteral growls…

He’s chalk-eating and consternation and scrunchy-nose-faces…

He is daddy’s look-a-like and sissy’s biggest fan…

He is awkward-lean-in-kisses, un-raveller of the toilet paper, mad splasher of the tub…

He’s “don’t hold me too tight,” and “i’m going to spill that” and “no, i am much too busy to look at your camera”…

He’s cherubic blonde & blue. He’s “I want Papa Neal” and “you better share that banana with me.”

He’s clappy hands and dance moves and banging blocks and eight teeth much-labored-over…

He’s blubbery, content lap-lump and snuggle-bug…

He’s in my heart for good.

Here’s to celebrating you, little one…and all the things God has in store for your precious life.

treasuring all these things up in my heart,

  1. Looking forward to celebrating his first year. He is an adorable, “all-boy”. As you put it, there is much to give praise and thankfulness and I’m so pleased he is being brought up in the Lord. Love, Gma Kris
