Happy half birthday to you, my sweet boy! In July, when I was waiting to meet you, I constantly looked ahead (in my head) to January. I'd imagine you sitting up, interacting with Harrison and having a personality all your own. Somehow, here we are and let me tell you - you aren't disappointing.
If it seems like I was just yammering on about how you had turned 4-months old, you're right. I published your 4-month letter earlier today and now I'm back with a timely 5-month letter. You win some, you lose some.
I apologize for publishing your 4-month letter on your 5-month birthday, but you (and your brother) keep me insanely busy. At the end of the day, once you're both asleep and the house is de-tornadoed, I'm ready to turn my brain off and completely zone out. But hey, you're *hopefully* getting your 4-month and your 5-month on the same day, so that's special, right?!
It's been three months since your last letter. Although the first twelve months went by at a(n) (unusually) reasonable pace for your old Mama, the last three months have not. It feels like you're positively rocketing into toddler-dom but that's okay. We're having the time of our lives and soaking it all in. I can't believe how you've changed.
Hi bud! A quick note about why your 12-month letter is being published 2 weeks after you turned one... yes, it's the tardiest I've been on one of these but here's the thing - actually here are the few things that are contributing to the tardiness: you had four (!!!) birthday parties, you decided to stop sleeping through the night for quite a few days, we took over 2000 pictures in a little over a week and we visited with lots of family and friends so cut me a little slack, okay?
Hi, crazy boy! It was January 17th when I started this letter and now it's January 21st which means we are LESS THAN two months away from your first birthday. I know - that has to be a joke, right?! You've officially lived out in the world longer than you lived in me.
Before I start in on your letter this month, I just want to thank you for kicking off month 9 with such a bang. Two nights in a row, you slept from 6:30pm to 7:00am. It. Was. Awesome. While it lasted... you've slept through the night quite a bit since then, but you now...
