Happy First Birthday Wyatt!

Dear Wyatt,

It's your first birthday and I just can't believe we have already known you for a whole year!  I can't remember what life was like before you arrived...you have fit right in from the start.  You are the best mix of a little brother...you hold your own, know just when to squack to elicit the right reaction from us, and you can keep up with your three and a half year old brother just fine.  Ethan loves you to pieces, but can also be a brat!  He's either smothering you with hugs and kisses or...literally smothering you in a wrestle move.  Life is definitely more exciting since you arrived.

You love to smile and wave and hate to be put down when you're not ready.  You sleep pretty soundly through the night--even when your older brother is having a threenager meltdown!  You adore the cat and could follow her around all day long.  You are cruising like a champ and I foresee your first step to be in the near future.  You light up when we come to wake you up in the morning or when we get you in the evening from your nanny's or grandma's.  You have five teeth now, two on the bottom and three on top.  Santa literally brought you your two front teeth for Christmas!  :)

You love bath time and going on walks in the stroller.  You are starting to get more into food...which means we need to up your mealtime variety.  You are talking more and more...and hate to miss out on any fun.  You have a pretty big case of FOMO, which runs in the family.  You are also a crawling ninja and can crawl so fast to wherever you want to go that we will lose you in three seconds flat.

You are a tiny little peanut, with a pretty sizable head.  You already have thick, curly hair which is quite different from when Ethan was your age.  You love to point and high five but haven't mastered how to clap quite yet.  You absolutely love a game of peek-a-boo...you play it with me every night before bed with your blankie.

It's so true what they say about your heart expanding to love a second child as much as the first--but I can honestly say it's true.  Your little personality is starting to shape and I just love the little human being that you are.

We love you so much and can't wait for more fun adventures ahead!

Love, Mommy
{Daddy and Ethan too!}
