Happy Birthday Brody!

February 20, 2013

It took this momentous occasion to get me to finally update the blog!  I just can’t believe that our little guy is going to be a year tomorrow– it went by SO fast!  Much fast than I remember Desi’s first year.  To be fair, it has been quite an adventurous year.

A year ago tonight my biggest concern was how I could possibly love this baby as much as I loved Des– I was very sad for Des to be bringing this new baby into the world that would take away so much of my time I had just for him.  Boy, was that worry I didn’t need!!  Your ability to love truely does expand exponentially, and giving Desi Brody as a brother is most likely the best gift I will ever give to him.  They are already best buds.

In looking back, here is a list of all of the things our little man expirienced in the past year:

  • Met his big Brother (and mom and dad of course!)
  • Sold our house in Santa Barbara
  • Flew to the east coast to meet his Great Grandma
  • A LONG drive from Santa Barbara to Oregon
  • Family vacation in Boulder (100+ degrees!)
  • Moved into new house in Seattle
  • Flirted with a series of nanny’s as mom went back to work (and we didn’t have the best luck)
  • Beer Pong!
  • Weekend away to Bainbridge Island
  • PUMPKINS!
  • Met Santa (was not impressed)
  • Went sledding
  • Visit back to Santa Barbara (not that he remembers it)
  • First steps (we didn’t miss it!)
  • Too many kisses to count, from all of the people who love him and came to visit us– he really is one lucky kid!

And while he is lucky, I count my blessings every day to have such a sweet, silly boy join our family.  Brody could not be a better fit for us, and Desi could not be a better big brother.  Jason continues to be an incredible dad to them both– I think the three of them started wrestling when B was about 3 months old.  It’s only become more hilarious (and stressful!) to watch since then.

We love you Brody, Toady, little fellow, and can’t wait to watch you grow!
