My Wonderful Son,

You are one year old today! WOW! I think back to a year ago and I am amazed at how much things have changed. You don't even look like the same little baby.

Your father and I are amazed at how you have changed. This cute little 6 lbs. 9 oz. baby, has turned into....

...this...a little boy....22 lbs. of giggles.

There are so many things that will forever remain in my mind about the last year, that you will have no memory of...your first smile, laugh, tooth, roll, word, all night sleep, boo-boo, crawl, sit, high-five...I could go on and on.

There are so many people that love you: Apple, Grandpa Don and Arlen, Uncle Dan and Aunt Karen, Aunt Leslie and Uncle Cal, Cousin Anna and Jack, Grandma and Grandpa Schlaefer, Uncle Kurt and Aunt Joan, Cousin Ryan and Julie and Uncle Kent and Aunt Cathe, Cousin Peter and Steven, Aunt Karen and Uncle Brian, Cousin Scott, Sandi and Stephanie, Aunt MaryKay and Uncle Andy, Cousin Hannah and Carly, Super Aunt Genie and Uncle Kevin, Cousin Heather and Jillian, Uncle Mark and Aunt Connie, Cousin Abigail and Mae, Uncle John and Aunt Kim, Cousin Jeremy, Zachery and Amanda and many, many more!

You are an amazing blessing and you make your Daddy and I so happy! I love you, Son!
