Qais turns 1

First of all, I can’t believe this time last year I was headed to the doctors office to do one of my last checkups before our little man made it into this world. Some days Im still in shock that I have another human to look after and tend to. The year has flown by and I can’t believe how big our little man has gotten. A lot happens in a year, us as adults tend to grow a lot and learn a lot about ourselves but our children, those moments pass quicker than we realize and poof there went another year.

Babies are tough. There’s no doubt about that. They know how to push buttons on a bad day, know how to tug on your heart strings but they also know how to keep you warm & fuzzy as well as smoother you with all the love in the world. We have definitely had our ups and downs- pretty much every day between 4-7 months was a battle. I honestly couldn’t tell you why but I remember those being my least favorite months, too many changes and not enough consistency. All of the other months, spectacular! Loved every minute of it. But I wouldn’t change a single day that went by as we watched our little one grow.

This year has been nothing short of amazing and truly the best year of our lives. We have an overachiever and the busiest little boy there is. He is into every little thing and I anticipate him working with his hands because this kid loves to take apart and rebuild everything that he finds. He has the kindest heart and the biggest personality and if you’ve ever met him personally he will just want to make you laugh with his silliness. I pray he remains this way his entire life and only grows to love the people that cross his path even more. I say he got the best of Moe & I and I pray that it stays that way.

Happy birthday bug! Mama & Baba love to you to pieces! We can’t believe how big of a boy you are and how much more we have to share with you. We want this day to be the best day ever!
