Ezra: One Year

Monday, June 25, 2012

Oh sweet nostalgia. I've been terribly indulgent and have reread every last letter of these two posts, one and two.

To think that just a year ago, we had only made acquaintance with you, our sweet Ezra John.

We had no concept just how well you would complement our family. Or how easy going and different your temperament would be different from your older brother's.

Little one, as the 2nd child, we can't help but compare you to what we know, which is limited to Isaac. You started out similar in so many regards, but you were not as vocal. Additionally, you peacefully slept in your swing more readily!

Continuing the similarities, your Daddy is quite struck by you and easily succumbed to your desires for cuddles.

There was no doubt from the beginning that you would not have blue eyes, although we were all a little surprised when they remained much darker than Isaac's hazel, and ultimately are a dark brown.

You got the memo to move quite early and you often entertained yourself with your toes and trying to roll over.

Once you figured out that smiling at us would get a smile in return, I don't think you've stopped.

No really, I don't think you've stopped. You are quite possibly one of the world's happiest babies!

Although, you're still not entirely sure about the big camera covering my face. I don't blame you on that one though.

With you crawling at 6 months, climbing the stairs by 9 months and walking before a year, we think that charming smile might make you more of a handful than Isaac!

We're totally not complaining though, because you fit right into our crazy family.

Sweet boy, we love you so much.

Thank you for all that you bring to our family.

We pray that we are able to raise you in a way that strengthens all of your gifts and protects your inherent sweetness.


Hold on baby boy, the years are just going to fly by now.
