One year has never felt so short.
Colton, you've grown up so fast. Maybe it's because you have 3 siblings to teach you, and maybe it's because I've wished you to stay little....
either way, your infancy is behind you already,
and with tears welled up in my eyes,
I am trying to put into words just how much we love being blessed with you!
You are brimming with personality already!
You love to laugh with whoever is laughing, and wave to and kiss those who say good-bye.
Most endearing of all your traits, little man, you are a hugger.
Wrapping your chubby little arms around someones neck and snuggling-in is the move:
melted hearts are the result.
And although you give out lots of this love...my baby boy, you still love mommy the most. I'm not complaining, nor do I want to give up my preferred status anytime soon. I know this won't last.
So, I will come when you call.
I will let you snuggle right in.
Sweet, Sweet Boy.
You are ONE in a MILLION.
We celebrated your birthday with a WHOLE LOT of family...
can you believe you belong with this rowdy bunch?
Grandpa Bob manned the Fish Fryer
and we continued the fish theme from the cakes
to the balloons...
with a big family like ours,
you get to celebrate your birthday with lots of your cousins too
We all LOVE you so much, Colty!
HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY !
