Friends, my heart is full. Yesterday baby Hawk turned one year old. It seems like just yesterday that I introduced him to the world, gave Cole a best friend, perfected the swaddle, and had a spinal headache all at once. What a year it’s been.
Pardon me while I dote and brag, but my Hawk is, well, wonderful. He’s beautiful, kind, gentle, fun, happy, squishy, and funny. He’s so sweet that sometimes I want to bite him. There are no words to describe how I love him so.
We kept his birthday simple this year. A month before his birthday, I had grand plans to have a big bash with all the neighborhood kids, their families, and our family. As the days passed, my plans dwindled. As much as I love a good party, I just didn’t feel like throwing one, so I didn’t. We had the grandmas and grandpas over for hotdogs, gifts, and then cake. It was perfect.
