Your updates haven't been as frequent in our blog as your siblings . . . 4th child problems . . . But you have hit some massive changes recently. I was beginning to get worried about your lack of physical milestones - you rolled, sat, and crawled later than your siblings. Then the spark of movement hit you and after just a few weeks of finally crawling you decided to cruise. After just a few weeks in our new home you have mastered stairs - I have simultaneously been reminded of the frequent panic attacks that ensue allowing you to explore this new talent.
I would like to say you are a happy baby - but, in what I can only assume is your way of being heard in this crazy family, you scream . . . A LOT!!!!
You are mastering the world of self feeding and finger foods . . . But you have zero abilities with a sippy cup so far.
I can't believe you will be one in 2 short weeks. I feel like your first year has been a whirlwind of craziness. But I know that soon we will have 2 days a week where it's just you and me . . . Your big brother is starting preschool. I will cherish those days with my whole being . . . But I will love the 3 days where you and your brother will be home without sisters and develop the bond I already see between the two of you. The next year will go by even more quickly than your first year . . . And then it will be just you and me at home Big H . . . And then I will find a way to make time stop . . .
You are already starting to look like a little boy instead of my chubby baby . . .
