First off, Baby J is one. We made it to a year. Wait, how many years left? :)
It's been a really hard year for me. My best friends are exhausted of listening me talk about our sleep woes. But after a full year, I've figured out that Boo Boo is just a very light sleeper (he gets it from Chris because I sleep like a log) which is why naps have been a real struggle for us. But this week, magically, we've had great naps. It's either his gift to me for carrying him for 9 months or a fluke or something has just clicked. I don't know but I love it.
He's also full of energy. At our 12 month we'll check, the doctor said, "wow! He is REALLY active!" It's hard for us to go out for long for this reason because he needs to crawl, stand, sit, climb and move!
He's hilarious. I don't know. I'm sure all mommies find their babies adorable and hilarious but this kid will hear music and begin bopping his head and moving his hips and sometimes he'll hold his hands up in the air (and wave them he just don't care). He makes me laugh.
So it's been a hard year but a very rewarding one. I love when he crawls up to me and comes in for an open mouth kiss. I love when he puts his head down on my shoulder and just melts into me. I love his big buck teeth when he smiles and when he does silly things like this!
