My Little Austin

You are less than 2 weeks away from your very first birthday. Daddy and I are still trying to figure out if we will spend the day at Sea World with you and your sisters or have a party at home.

The year has flown by so fast. You are on the verge of walking. Today we spent one hour at the mall's playground where you delighted in every other child. You smile and laugh and want to play so badly with each and every one of them. It is such a joy to watch you try and engage others. You have a sweet heart, my little man.

Fearless. I am so proud of the way you are so independent and fearless. Nothing can stop you when you set your mind to it. Whether it is standing and reaching for the highest object or jumping from the pool's 3 foot ledge. You are simply fearless.

At this point in your life, you

hate sitting in your high chair, and opt to eat anywhere but there
love spotting helicopters and airplanes
had your first love affair was with your ceiling fan
would spend all day playing and climbing on the backyard waterfall if we let you
love taking walks with Grammie and looking at the spinning bee and flower pinwheels
enjoy driving anywhere
get excited when Carmen arrives every morning
stand up and play with your diaper genie
climb the stairs in 10 seconds flat

What a blessing you are my little champion. Your sisters adore you. Grammie can't remember life without you. And Daddy and I feel like the luckiest people in the world.
