Happy 1st Birthday Jbird

Happy 1st birthday to my Jbird. What a great year it has been.

I remember finding out I was pregnant with this sweet boy and the roller coaster ride of pregnancy after a loss that ensued. He was my easiest pregnancy yet the one clouded with the most anxiety and fear. For months I day dreamed of holding him in my arms and dealt with the fear of losing him. On August 15th, 2012, He came into the world after the easiest delivery ever. God is good.
The constant theme with my Jbird can be described with one word "easy". He's been such an easy baby. Yes he didn't really sleep much until he was about 6 months but once he did it was smooth sailing. He has been sleeping through the night in his own bed for half his life :).
He was easy with breastfeeding. Got on the boob like it was his job within a few hours of birth and mastered that in no time. Breastfeeding this child was so easy. I was so sad when it ended.
He was easy with eating solid food. From the moment he tried it, he was good with it. He has been eating all sorts of food and loving it. I am ready to start the transition to real people food :). I am sure that will be easy too.
He was easy with adjusting to his big brother. He is so in love with his brother and his brother returns the favor daily. Watching my boys together has been one of the best experiences of my life.

He was and still is such a chill baby. Easy to take on trips, doesn't care if you mess up with his schedule, and just goes with the flow. He is all smiles all the time, showing off his grin and super happy personality.
What can I say. My easy and happy baby Jbird, thank you so much for this amazing first year. It's been a joy to watch you grow and watch you interact with your brother. You have been such a dream baby. I look forward to watching you grow even bigger each year.
Happy birthday sweet baby boy. We love you more than you will ever know. Please continue to be such a happy and easy baby. I am so happy God gave us you.
"Now glory be to GOD who by His mighty power at work within you is able to do far more than you could ever dare to ask or even dream of. Infinitely beyond your highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes." Ephesians 3:20-21

"Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you" Psalm 116:7
