One Year

This year I have...

...had my sweet little VBAC baby, Silas.
...tandem nursed for a whole year.
...left our beloved Michigan.
...lived in Spokane for 4 months.
...stopped watching movies with Eli and Silas and started doing more activities with them
...watched Jared walk the stage, graduating from Law School.
...moved back home with my parents.
...enjoyed getting to know our families again.
...learned the art of patience as we wait for Jared to be able to get a job.

This year Silas has...

...been born, surprising his Mom and Dad with his stubborness and his hair.
...nursed like a champ right off the bat.
...started sitting at 4 months.
...traveled Canada and the US like nobody's business.
...rolled over and started crawling the same week, at 8 months.
...grown his hair out, like Sampson.
...woken up every 2 hours to nurse, all night long, almost every night!
...loved to swim.
...taken his first step, 1 week shy of a year.
...charmed the world with a beautiful 6 tooth grin.
...decided that his big brother Eli is about the coolest thing in the world, and would rather play with him than almost anything else in the world. 

It's been a wild ride, but I can't even tell you how much more I love my baby Si every single day.  He is such a blessing, and I can't wait for what's to come. 

Happy birthday my sweet Silas, I love you so much!
