13 months of watching you grow, “give kisses to the baby” (and “…the mama”, sometimes), play “where’s River?” over and over again, grunt, go “uh, uh, uh” when you want food, from pointing with your wrist to pointing with your finger, go from not noticing Inu to chasing him around the room saying “Dogum!” with much excitement, watching you not even be able to sit up to pulling yourself up and walking a good 10 steps (and then realizing that crawling is MUCH faster!) playing with toys and finding that you love interactive books and music toys best, of getting loved by all your family members, of travel to Colorado, Hawaii, New York and being the best baby traveler I’ve ever met, of going from breastfeeding to solid food with difficulties along the way that we got through together with patience and love, of staying home with your mama the first 6 months of life and then heading to daycare where you made lots of friends to having your mom and dad pull you out of daycare again for the summer (such will be your life!), and most of all, it’s been 13 months of fun and happiness and love that all of us have been given by your sweet, laid back and upbeat personality. We are so lucky to have you in our lives, I love you with all my heart babe! Thank you for being the most amazing person that I have ever met!
