Happy 1st Birthday Bean

Happy 1st birthday to my Bean. What an amazing and fast year it has been.

I remember finding out I was pregnant with this sweet boy of mine when his brother Jbird was a mere 10 months old. I was wondering how we were going to make it work and somehow we managed. Bean was my easiest pregnancy yet, I guess I need to keep popping more babies :). From the moment I found out I was pregnant with him, I couldn't wait to get my hands on him. On February 28th, 2014, Bean graced us with his presence and made our lives even better than it was before. God is good.

Just like his brothers before him, Bean has been such an easy baby. He still doesn't sleep through the night or more than 6 hours at a time but he is easy as can be in every department.

He was easy with breastfeeding. Got on the boob like it was his job within minutes of birth and mastered that in no time. Breastfeeding this child was and still is so easy. We made it to my goal of one year thanks to this easy baby and he is showing no signs of stopping.

He didn't care much for baby food but loves to eat real grown up food. I am amazed at how well he has been doing with solid food. I am telling you Bean is such an awesome baby.

Bean adjusted so well to life with his 2 older brothers. He likes to chase them around the house and I am sure he can't wait for the day that he can play with them non stop. Luckily for him they return the favor. Watching my 3 boys interact with each other is simply one of the best things in my life right now.

Bean was a little world traveler his first year of life. He made it easy for mommy to take him on trips. We went to England twice, Canada once, and Colorado once. Bean is so easygoing that he just goes with the flow and doesn't complain too much even when his schedule is turned upside down.

What can I say. My easy and happy baby Bean, thank you so much for this amazing first year. We are so grateful to have been part of your first year of life. You have been such a dream baby. I look forward to watching you grow even bigger each year.
