Happy 1st Birthday to My Prince!!!

Dear Brooks-

I can not believe you are 1 year old today. I still remember the day I found out I was pregnant with you. I remember the day I found out you were a boy and most importantly I remember the day I had you! Where has all that time gone? As I always say, it's going too fast. You have been such a good baby!! You are so laid back and so much fun! I could just eat you to pieces! I can't wait to watch you grow up and see the world through your eyes. You and your sister bring us so much joy!! Here are some pictures of you from the last year!

This is what you are up to these days!

You sleep all night from about 8:00 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. everyday.
You still nap twice a day. Once in the morning for about an hour and once in the afternoon for about 2 hours.
You wear size 12 month clothes.
You are eating nothing but table food.
You will take juice/water from a sippy cup just fine, but you are not so sure you like your milk from it.
You are still on a little bit of formula but once this can is done you'll be completely on whole milk.
You can clap your hands, you can wave, and you can throw your hands in the air when we say 'touch down Auburn'. So very cute!!!
We turned you around in the car and it's like it's a whole new world for you.
You have your own version of saying Emma's name, it sounds like Memma. It's really cute!
You can shake your head no when you don't want something or we ask you something and when you want to say yes you say ugghh... and nod your head yes. It's too cute.
We ask you at night if you are ready to go to bed and you say ugghh...nod your head and go to the steps then crawl up them and go to your room.
We can also ask you if you need a dry diaper or you have a stinky diaper and you will go to the bedroom, pull out a diaper and lay down. You are such a SMART boy!! (Hopefully this is a sign you'll be easy to potty train when the time comes)
You do have a little bit of a temper here and there and it's too funny to watch. I'm sure this is purely because you can't do and say everything you want too right now.
You love us all but you are definitely a momma's boy and I love it!! Hopefully you'll stay that way!
You can give kisses all by yourself and I just can't get enough of them!! I could kiss you and your sister all day long!!

I'm sure I'm forgetting something! You are truly amazing and we are so proud of you! You change and grow everyday and I'm so thankful to be able to see it all happen.

We love you more then you'll ever know and we hope you have the best 1st birthday ever!!

Love you bunches Brooks!!
Mommy, Daddy & Emma
