12 months

My favorite little bub at 12 months.  Fresh out of the bath - one of his favorite places!  He just started taking 5-6 steps on his own last week - he is a walking boy! Though, he prefers to crawl still. He also got all 4 top front teeth all at once.  It made him cranky for about an hour, but he just shrugged it off like the happy little trooper that he is.  I can't believe 12 months have gone by since he was born.  He has grown so much and I know I say this every month, but he is the most joyful kid in the world.  I just don't know how we could have lived life without him.

More of ONE

The hat was a hit for mom, but not so much for Arlo!

Ahh, much better without the hat on (much to mom's dismay!)

First taste of goldfish at his 1st birthday party!  I have a feeling it will be a lifelong love.

The Birthday Boy

Finally, some adorable photos from Arlo's first birthday party.  We had a low-key brunch to celebrate this super awesome kid.  I can't believe a year has gone by since our wonderful, magical stay in the hospital where we welcomed our favorite little guy.  He has grown so much over the past year and is hitting every milestone like a champion. But the thing that has remained exactly the same is the absolutely happy, joyful, sweet, seemingly endless elation that Arlo has.  His demeanor has got to be in the top 1% of this world. EVERY SINGLE DAY is a joy with this boy.  We love you Arlo!

Still the closest of friends. Just look at their faces!

***Thanks again to my favorite photographer, Charlie, for the wonderful moments he captured at Arlo's party!
