We had such a special day celebrating such a sweet and joyful boys first year of life. Looking back on this year I am beyond grateful for the healthy strong little man we have! He started out as a tiny little 6 pounder born three weeks before his due date. He then dealt with seven very rough weeks of a nasty case of RSV. We spent many sleepless nights keeping one eye open watching anxiously as that little chest moved up and down.
Now here we are at the one year mark with a strong healthy boy who has not only thrived but out done all his siblings on his physical abilities. He began walking at 10 1/2 months old... A whole month earlier than his big sister Anna. He is now flying all over the house and boy does he make his big sisters proud!
On the other hand, his big brother still sees him as a bit of competition .... BUT, they do genuinely love each other! Out of nowhere they will randomly hug or pat each other on the back!
Rivers is pure joy! The happiest baby and the friendliest little guy you could want to meet. When he sees you coming he runs with big arms open wide and squeals ... And my heart melts. When you pick him up he puts that sweet little head on your shoulder and wraps his little arms around your neck.... Again, melting heart!
I am so grateful for the very unexpected yet amazingly incredible blessing of our little Rivers Joseph!!
