Happy 1st birthday bubba! 🎂🍼 It was a rough start for you but you were resillient and grew strong. Very strong, we feel it everytime you kick us.
And you're growing to be very smart and skillful like how you learned to stand and climb before you could even crawl properly. Or how you'd wrap yourself with the blanket like a burrito and roll off the bed. I guess you know about padding yourself for the fall somehow - though it still doesn't make our heart stop in fear any less.
More so, you're showing a lot of determination for a little boy. We are truly impressed with how you don't give up until you've mastered a step or achieved a goal. Just like how you'd cry or cough your way until we get you out of the cot and back onto our bed at night.
Oh, you are a funny one, a character from the start. We love seeing your silly faces, hearing your nightly babbling, and your attempts to blow raspberries on us. We really enjoy seeing you happy with simple things like playing peek-a-boo or dragging your favorite toy brick around. We also appreciate your showing us your excitement and delight when you body slam us or scream loudly for our neighbors to hear. Someday though we hope you can just give us a hi-five.
You definitely keep us aware and our eyes half open even in sleep. Actually we don't really sleep anymore.
But, no regrets because you are a very important addition to our lives and we are overly joyful and blessed to be your parents. We just need to sharpen our reflexes and drink loads of coffee to keep up with your energy!
Really though, we love you so so so much Tyler aka Fly Ty aka Monster Baby. You have been so wonderful and charming. We could only wait in excitement for the things you will do, talk about, and pursue.
Cheers and positive wishes to your future! Now please stop biting us and pulling our hair! 💛
