A Year!

Amidst the fog of having a newborn and toddler at home, I remember thinking, "What a difference a year will make!" And what a difference it is. Elliott is walking, babbling, eating all manner of real food, driving his brother crazy by taking toys and knocking things over, and generally making our cups runneth over with his very presence. He is often serious and quiet, but has the funniest little chuckle when amused. He gets excited to see furry creatures: dogs, cows, kittens. He will follow his brother anywhere and protests loudly at being trapped behind baby gates. He likes his nap schedule but is easy-going enough that he isn't a total crank if we are out and about at nap time, though at home even Colter has been known to say, "I think Elliott's ready for a nap." He's a good sleeper and a good eater, though his milk and egg allergies keep us on our toes (fingers crossed for outgrowing them).

It feels like this has been the busiest year of our lives, but it's the year our family became the family we dreamed of, and so it has been the best year. 

Happy birthday, Baby E. We all love you so.

Apparently, it has been a busy year for Elliott as well.


  1. Love looking back! Lucky you, lucky boys:)

  2. Happy birthday to that sweet little guy! I should have told him in person today!
