Happy 1st Birthday, Connor


I was very emotional about my sweet baby boy turning 1. I just find it incredibly unbelievable. He is still such a baby (albeit a giant baby).

We happened to be in North Carolina visiting Eric's sister when it was Connor's birthday. She helped make his first birthday so memorable.

At 1 year of age, Connor is just Mr. Smiley and Mr. Giggly. I don't know how to put into words what a happy guy he is. He is starting to babble quite a bit. He is a master of mimicking sounds. He is able to say "ma", "dada", "Grandma", "Indy", "uh-oh" and "bubbles". He is an eating machine, and he makes it very known when he is hungry. He's still not walking yet, but I am convinced he can win at a crawling contest. He is a snuggler, loves to hug and kiss everyone. He is also super sensitive-- he will get his feelings hurt if Riley won't play with him (which she never does).

Connor was an unplanned baby and I often find myself marveling at how this surprise just fit so perfectly in our lives. He just completes our family. I am so excited to watch our buddy grow up and see what kind of man he will turn out to be. Happy first birthday to my baby boy Connor Dao. I love you buddy!
