I am writing this birthday post to my baby boy on the eve of his first birthday.
This is crazy. I truly cannot imagine my life without my silly little man.
A year has pasted and this bouncing, chubby, rolly, polly guy has changed my life
more than I imagined. And not just in the typical first baby cliches either.
I miss sleep. I miss late night movies. I miss having my husband all to myself.
But I wouldn't change any of it.
I live in a household full of men and I LOVE it. I never sleep in and I LOVE it
(okay part of me doesn't love it, but it's worth it)
With everything that changes and shifts you find new balance in your life.
It's kind of crazy the amount of clarity a baby brings.
I never realized how hard this job would be.
Not being a photographer. Being a mom.
It's one of the hardest things I have yet to do,
but also one of the most amazing things I could have ever imagined.
I stopped posting letter's to Crew on my blog
but thought it would be fun to do one in honor of his birthday.
7:55am- Nov. 22nd, 2010 Crew Holden Rose was born.
You are 1. And with that short sentence your mommy has turned into a puddle. You will realize this soon about girls. They cry... sometimes a lot :)
My sweet Crewster... Happy Birthday my love! I am so proud of all you have accomplished this year. I will probably write this in your bday card when you are 20, but still I think 1 is your best year. Your daddy and I are so extremely blessed to have you as our son, you have taught us so much in the past year. I can't believe you came into our lives a year ago and you are already a lil man. I cannot wait to watch you grow up sweet boy! We can't quite figure out your little personality quite yet... you are independent but definitely a momma's boy ;)
You are rambunctious and determined and kind of a terror to the dog!
You don't toss out the smiles for free. You are inquisitive and like to study people.
It takes a lot to get a grin or laugh outta you. If people only knew all they had to do was sneeze,
and you are a laughing fool :)
You are quite large for your age baby boy. But I think the bigger the baby the better :)
let's face it, this is the age where you can get away with being the beefiest baby on the block!
Fun things about you:
Hair: Strawberry Blonde
Weight/size: 30 lbs/ 2 & some 3 t clothes
Favorite food: Green Beans, Cheerios, Sweet Potato, Cheese
Favorite person: Bubbles. Yup the dog is def. your fav
Favorite word: Dada... You said Mama first but now all you say is Dada! Sometimes RawRaw (which we think is the dog)
Favorite song: "Happy Birthday" , "The Bunny Song" , "You are my Sunshine"
Favorite activity: Bath time for sure! You are a water baby
What makes you laugh: When mommy and daddy dance for you, sneezing, coughing, spitting is a new one...
What you don't like: hmmm. you pretty much like everything. you'll eat anything! and it shows chunky monkey :)
Now we are off to Disneyland for your birthday! Woo hoo!
And a couple sneaks of your 1st birthday party (I will be able to post photos soon!)
