A special little somebody, turned one recently. How the time has flown by and how he's transformed into a little boy, right before our eyes. What a cheeky little smile he has too, but if you're wondering where he gets that snazzy dress-sense from, just ask his dad...
David wanted to get Peter a tie and and outfit for his first birthday. My two special guys with ties! What a carefree and uneventful time we had for his first birthday, unlike the day of his arrival. I look at how happy he is today, taking his baby footsteps which make him giggle all the way to my legs - it's hard to remember that tiny baby in the humidicrib, with tubes in his arms which made me worry I couldn't hold him in mine.
What a difference twelve months can make. We'll be happy if the next twelve months are equally as uneventful. Smiling over regular stuff in life, holding hands and stealing as many cuddles as we can in a day. It may be uneventful, but what a way to live!
We're glad you came along, Peter, even if you do get into absolutely everything now with your eager curiosity and newly found motor skills. It's all just part of growing up. I bet the next year will fly by, just as quickly too! May you keep reminding us that smiles are infectious and you're never too young to wear a tie.
PS: This is a velcro tie, so comes off when pulled - in case anyone was worried it could be a choking hazzard.
