Wow, I’m turning one! It’s like a big, colorful dream come true. For the longest time, I’ve been fascinated by the world around me. Turning one is like embarking on a grand adventure. One moment, I was a tiny bundle in my parents’ arms, and the next, I was standing on wobbly legs, exploring this big, exciting world. The first year of my life has been a whirlwind of new experiences and endless discoveries. I’ve learned to smile, laugh, and even take those tentative first steps. And now, here comes this day filled with so much joy and laughter. All these grown-up faces are gathered around, and they’re all making a fuss over me. I may not completely understand why, but I can feel their love and excitement. Maybe it’s because I’m taking my first steps, or maybe it’s because of this sugary cake they’ve put in front of me. Either way, turning one feels like a fantastic adventure, and I can’t wait to see what this new year will bring. This sure feels like a fantastic start to a lifelong journey. Thanks for coming along with me on this adventure so far. Xoxo, Rost.
My dear, sweet, baby boy, I have written you a letter & tucked it into your memory box to read at a future date. Your dada & I are so proud of you & all that you have accomplished over the last year. Tonight we shot off fireworks in your honor – just like on the day you were born – and we will continue this tradition until the end of time. Happy First Birthday! xoxo, Mama.
