1 Year Ago....

 July 11, 2010

The table was set with a beautiful display of food, flowers, and candles.

There were gifts to open.  And lots of them!
There was advice to the soon-to-be parents.

But best of all there was love, laughter, and warmth.  Friends and family that were ready to meet Caleb and shower him with love.

And a year later...

I am feeding breakfast to my little guy.

And watching him bang out some rhythms in between bites.

 And watching him feed himself...

We are going to the park.  Caleb thought it was hilarious that Sadie was riding in the car too.

And crawling in Danielle's lap for a few bites of her Italian ice.
 And wiping a few tears away when the Italian ice eating was done.

Life sure has changed in a year's time!  I went to bed a year ago,  excited about putting away all Caleb's new things and thinking that he would soon be in those diapers, in that pack and play, in that jumperoo, sucking on those pacifiers.  A year later, I laid down with my sweet babe and just as I was about to nurse him, he told me "bye!" and was obviously ready for bed.  I stared at that sweet sleeping face after he nursed and drifted off to sleep and thought about just how incredibly lucky I am!

  1. It's amazing how much has happened in the last year, and how fast it all changes! Love the carseat pic of him smiling!
