Today, you are two! 

Exactly one year ago, we were getting ready to get on a plane in Taiwan to come home...with you.  :)
It may be your day for gifts, but you have been the most wonderful gift we could ever imagine and then some!  This past year has been so incredibly full of joy; what a blessing every single day has been!  We love you so much!!!

Here's what you've been up to:

You are starting to say more and more words like done, more, up, ball, snack, bot-bot, Papa, Gramps, book, get, boat, dog, and duck.  You'll pretty much copy anything you hear.

You can show us your ears, nose, mouth, and head.  :)

I don't know how much you weigh, but probably around 16 lbs.

You are getting so much better at eating solid foods!  You protest if we try to give you baby food!!

You still like to pretend yawn, but then it makes you yawn for real.  ;)

You realized that you can sit up on your own!  We had to break a habit of laying on your tummy to
play (I know most kids hate tummy time, but not you!).

You are still stuck to Mama like glue; I don't really mind. ;)

You have been sleeping great, 8:30 pm to 8:00 or 8:30 am and a 2 1/2-3 hour nap!

One of your favorite activities is running Zoey or Max down in your walker...we're working on that. ;)

 You can climb the stairs (with someone watching you of course)!

You wave Bye-bye.

You give smooches and pats on the back, love!

One year later, we still believe without a doubt that God gave us the most perfect baby boy for our family and we are so incredibly thankful!!
