Happy Birthday Micah!
Happy Birthday, my sweet little one! Today you turn one year old. Last night as I put you to sleep, I cried tears over your sweet head. You're no longer my baby, but my big boy. Sure, you're still such a tiny baby boy, but the fact that we now count your age in years, rather than months, shows the passage of time. You have been nothing short of a JOY to have as a part of our family! You smile ALL THE TIME - everyone who is around you always comments on what a happy baby you are. You love your family and are quite content to follow your crazy loud siblings where ever they are in the house to join them in their activity. You have now been cruising very well around the furniture for a good 3 months - but still no walking on your own. Grandma took you "walking" in her fingers down our hall the other night - and rather than walk - you just ran like crazy! You were cracking up the whole time - and it was like in your little head, you were just saying "you folks have no idea what I'm capable of!"
You have blessed us this past week with your very first week of SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT! You have worn us out, little guy - with wanting to continue being with your mama several times throughout the night - so we are giving God the praise for this newest development. But we are still holding our breath that this will last! Sleep - it does a mama and daddy good!
Micah, we just love you so much, and are continually thankful that God chose you to join our family! Happy Birthday, sweet boy! We can't wait to see what this next year of your life holds for us!
