It’s been [almost!] a whole year since John became the center of our world. It really did fly by, considering the long and agonizing nights, as well as the routines we had to establish to avoid said nights.
What a year. I’m convinced we lucked out in the baby department — aside from how terrible I was at adapting to lack of sleep.
In two days, this guy turns a whole year old. We made it! It feels that way, anyhow, even though I know so much more will come. And because you only turn one once (YOTOO, all the kids call it), we threw him a party

Full disclosure: Many of the colours and decorations I made were inspired by this wonderful original post, to which you should go right now and drop your jaw in amazement.

A couple of days left and we have an actual toddler, for crying out loud! Can’t wait to see what this little nut does next.
(Based on the past few nights, my guess is walking all over the place.)
