This post has been really tough for me to write because it is deeply personal. I have avoided it and come back to it; I have cried while writing it. Now, here it is.

Just like that, our sweet Theo turned one year old on February 28, 2017. He has grown from a tiny baby to a joyful little boy, full of energy and enthusiasm. He is in constant motion, walking, and now running, babbling and “talking”, shrieking, smiling, pointing at everything with his whole hand, hugging his lovey, eating food with zest and filling our lives with pure delight. We find great joy in watching him discover and explore the world, all of which is new and amazing to him. It is extraordinary seeing it all through his beautiful green eyes, full of wonder and curiosity.
