well, it has finally happened, despite my best efforts to turn back time, little mister O turned 1 year old on Dec 1st. i can't believe this year has gone by so fast, when i think back on the teeny tiny baby i brought home last january it just doesn't seem like this could be the same one. he is crawling, standing up, drinking from a sippy cup, tearing up paper and getting into all sorts of innocent mischief! he can clap, babble in nonsense syllables, play peek-a-boo, bob his head up and down in time to the music and give super slobbery kisses! for all these things i am truly grateful.
happy birthday little ollie! (as you can see he was NOT crazy about that chocolate cupcake... i didn't even change his shirt because i knew he would barely touch the thing and i was right)
