For our family, today is a special day: our first son Nathan, turned one year old! You can see a photo of Nathan digging into his Personal Birthday Cupcake©, lips first, at his Big Birthday Bash™ on Saturday. :-)
I'm amazed that a year has already gone by and even more amazed at how much Nathan has grown in that year. He came home as a shrively little dude who was completely reliant on us for everything, to a little boy who can cruise on the furniture, can stand up by himself (can't quite walk yet though), knows several sign-language signs like milk, all done, eat, and more and knows how to bite the heads off of Goldfish crackers like a pro.
I suppose other parents will tell me that this "wondering where the years went" feeling is going to be the norm now and for the years to come. That's ok though, because I get to enjoy seeing my son grow and learn while being a part of that process. Cool.
Happy Birthday Nathan! :-)
