Happy 1st Birthday Brock!!

1st Birthday?!! OMG! What a difference a year makes!

Since Brock's birthday fell on a weekday, we're having a birthday party for him on Saturday! It is going to be Halloween themed and I cannot wait to show you all of the fun stuff we have!!

Time for a little reflection on the last 12 months.

Brock came into this world and changed our lives drastically! I remember how incredibly nervous we were to have the responsibility of raising this little baby! Here we sit tonight, way more confident in our parenting abilities, but still extremely nervous of what's to come.

Brock has taught us to love more deeply and to enjoy every single second of every single day. There isn't a time (unless its in a moment of tantrum) that I don't look at that boy and get the biggest smile on my face! He just brings us so much joy! He is a kind, old soul. He loves making people laugh with his silliness! His laugh is contagious!

Some new things in Brock's world:

- He says "thank you."
- He is soooo close to taking his first step! So we're officially on "First Step Watch!"
- He has recently started trying to feed himself with his spoon/fork (super messy)!
- He says "tickle, tickle, tickle" and literally leans into you with his hands out and tries to tickle you!
- He blows kisses
- He says 'Buh-bye'

I can't believe an entire year has come and gone :-( I look forward to watching our boy grow into a man with all of the values we will have instilled in him.

So here's to you Brock! Happy Birthday pumpkin! We love you so much!!
