Today my little guy turns one.
The last year has been the most wonderful adventure watching my tiny 6 pound baby grow into an active little boy. Yesterday we packed up the only home he has ever known and now we take on our next adventure — moving back to California. What a bittersweet week it has been saying goodbye to friends we love so much as well as goodbye to our first year of parenthood. Reflecting on all the changes we have been through and those that are still to come, I couldn’t imagine a more perfectly imperfect 365 days.
I suppose it’s only fitting JJ had a safari/adventure themed nursery.
Adventure awaits you, little one. Never stop exploring. We love you.
