Ode to Tristan

What a sweet little guy, this blue eyed small fry
he may never cuddle or be a good sleeper
but his laughs and his giggles make him a sure keeper!

I've never professed to be a good poet, but my silliness is very much a result of this special day. It's Tristan's birthday! That's right, one year ago this crazy little guy entered our life. I can't believe it's been a year, and yet I feel like we've been together for much longer. In his short existence, Tristan has brought so much joy to our home and has taught me what true love is. Because of this little guy I have learned to sacrifice and also to relax (before Tristan I never would have stood for my dining room floor looking the way it does)! Our family's dynamic is so different and wonderful because of Tristan, and on this very special day I feel especially blessed because of him.



The following pictures are a few I took yesterday.


I got such a kick out of Tristan's post nap hair.



If your wondering, this is what happens when you take a nap with damp hair (after getting a bath from Dad).



Recently Tristan has enjoyed hanging out on the bottom shelf of this table.


Upon waking up, this was one of the first places he went to play.

The following pictures are some of my favorites from the past year. I hope you enjoy!

That bed hair is priceless! What a goofy but oh so endearing boy. Congrats on making it through the first year, it gets more easy physically but not mentally as he gets older, but every stage is so great.
