Happy First Birthday Steven!!!

I cannot believe my baby is a year old today!! It's absolutely crazy how fast time has flown and how much has happened in the past year. A year ago, I couldn't believe I actually went through labor and delivered my first son. I was all sorts of nervous, excited, and tired! :) Now as I look back, it has been such a glorious road. Steven is such a good little guy, and is so much fun. Each day his personality pops out a little bit more and more, and he is just a mellow, yet funny kid. Seeing his face light up when I walk into a room, or hearing him follow me into different rooms when he can't see me is so much fun. When I went to get him up this morning, I sang happy birthday to him, and he just looked at me all confused...but he still has had a good day! Oh, and he officially cut his first tooth today. (Meaning it actually came through the gum). What a good birthday present! I'm sure that's why he was such a happy guy most of the day. I'm glad I decided to make his year pediatrician appointment for tomorrow, so he didn't have to get shots on his birthday!

Happy birthday lil Stevie! He's such a cute boy! Good idea planning his appointment for the next day. Cambree had shots on her birthday and she got a fever. no fun! He's just barely getting his first tooth? I thought he had teeth.

the doctor kept claiming Steven was teething every time we have gone to the doctor since he was 4 months old. They keep going up and coming down. now they have come out at last! Number 2 is almost through

Funny- the first thing I noticed in that top picture was the hospital gown you had on. I remember those lovely pink frocks!

Happy Birthday Steven! I can't believe he's one. I swear he was literally just born. I'm glad he had a good day for his birthday. I agree with you - kids shouldn't have to get shots on their birthday!

Give him kisses for us!

Has it really been a year? That is unreal. You guys are awesome. Do remember when you came up to see me and he cried anytime you tried to feed him because I laughed at him? That was awesome. He is such a cute kid. He is the perfect mix between the two of you. Tell your cute hubby from Zann and I.
