The birthday boy.
Singing Happy Birthday to Corwin first thing in the morning. I know it's been 2.5 weeks since C-dubya's (as Wally likes to call my bub bub) birthday. I have been busy and in training with my new tablet/laptop (Asus Transformer Prime) which so far has been great.
Corwin is now one! What joy this little person has brought to all of us! He is a happy sweet boy who adores his big sister and brother. He isn't picky about who gives him attention, although he is partial to mommy. He is easily satisfied and seems to instinctively know how certain things work. For example, he will (mostly) sit still so that he can get his shoes put on and therefore attain the great outdoors (it took my other kids until they were at least 2 to understand this concept...the stiller you stay, the faster you get away). I'm almost convinced he has the ability to think about some of the steps needed to get from point a to point b. He also seems to think that people generally are interested in providing for him and understand his needs. For example, at bedtime he often goes to his room to wait for some milky instead of coming to mommy because he knows the routine and that I know it too. He is strong and can climb a straight up and down ladder such as the one that is on Rhianwen's bunkbed.He loves to sing, point, play games, read, "scrumble" (Wally's word for wrestle/cuddle), and be in the middle of everything.
Opening his Magneteos. This toy has been loved by all. He was a pro at ripping wrapping paper, in fact, he's a pro at ripping any paper. Whenever he was given a gift, he would make the same expectant grunty oh sound and tear into it.
Enthralled with his giant birthday candle from the Hicklins.
Happy birthday toooo youuuu. He kind of tried to blow, but then wanted to grab.
One little happy boy. He actually didn't eat much of it at all.
Saturday after his actual b-day, we had his little party with family. It was an owl theme because he looooves owls. His nursery has been decorated with owls. Here he is playing pin the beak on the owl. He had owl decorations and cupcakes (for more pics, you can go here to the renovation tracker).
Eating birthday lunch with the family.
With his sock monkey "Monk-monk" made by NannyKim. He loves saying hi to him in the morning and dragging him off on adventures.
Opening Alden's gift, a drum.
A needlework owl made by Grandmama. We were so happy she came! Corwin's nursery has lots of owls. He loves them and heard the real ones the other night.
A look back, a year with our Corwin, our heart's desire. God gives undeserved good gifts, big and small.
