Almost a year ago...

It's hard to believe that a year ago you were getting ready to make your way into the world. And how, thinking back on it, my labor and delivery has been so much like this past year. You decided when you you were ready, but it took you a long time to get there. After a very easy 20 hours of labor after my water broke, you were still taking your sweet time. After giving you a little push (pitocin), you decided to come super fast. After a brief period of intense pain, you were born. Perfect. In every way.

That has been the course of this past year as well. You decided to take your sweet time, studying your world, before taking the big plunge of motion. I think we are currently in that brief time of intense pain as we chase you around everywhere, but soon it will all be perfect. Not that it isn't really perfect now, because it is. Truly, it is.

I love your sweet personality. And that you are totally "Mama's boy". And I love that you are showing some sparks in your temperament lately as well. We'll deal with those, but it makes me happy to see that you are showing your opinion and defiance at this point. Especially when you snuggle close to my neck whenever I tell you "no biting!" Cause that really hurts. Truly.

So, you just snuggle on away sweet little stink, and you will have me wrapped around your little finger. Oh wait, you already do.

Maybe daddy can stand firm. ...
