My Baby is One
One year ago today, a little, yet demanding, lump of flesh took his first breath of air. Though I'm still tired, sleepless nights, round the clock feedings, and lots of crying (for both of us, I'm sure) eventually gave way to a bright, active, happy baby who has never ceased to amaze us with all the things he continues to learn and do. When I was pregnant with Jake, he was such a busy-body, always moving around and kicking. He has definitely earned the nickename "monkey" because he still goes and goes and goes. A monkey he is and what a monkey we love.
So, Happy Birthday, Jacob Cole! Today we celebrate you, my sweet baby boy, and all that you have accomplished, and all the joy that you bring to our lives. And here's to the adventure we have only just begun!
