He is one. A toddler. A smiling, walking, laughing, mischievous, and unbelievable toddler. We’re spending the day as a family, savoring the last couple of days of leave. A simple day – one filled with hugs, kisses, and memories. And hopefully a cocktail or two for mommy and daddy.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we?
This time last year, I arrived at my 39 week prenatal appointment not having any idea how hard and rewarding the following year would be. At 7:29 pm, our lives forever changed. Cliched, I know, but I like to think we changed for the better. Who knew that a 7 pound 5 ounce little boy would turn our lives upside down? The first couple of months were a struggle and I slowly learned how to raise a child with a husband at war. But I did it. And I am still doing it. And I like to think that I am doing a pretty darn okay job.
