Peter: 1

Peter, you are one! How can 365 days have passed so quickly? Weren't we meeting you for the first time a few moments ago?

We all love teaching you new things. You can do a few signs - more, milk, dog. You point to everything, wanting to know what it is. You say "dog" with some regularity and I'm waiting to hear "Mama" in your little boy voice. You are days away from taking your first steps. It's going to get really crazy in our house when you can run with your sisters! And those sisters, by the way, take such good care of you. The "new" never wore off - you are still just as special to them today as you were a year ago. I'm thankful.

We're seeing more and more of your unique personality. Every day holds something new for you and we learn more about you. I love that. There are some things we've known about you from your first weeks of life and these things are still part of your makeup today. Like how your lovey (woobie) has to be smooshed into your face for you to fall asleep. Or how you love being close to someone, touching them or cuddling with them. Or how attached you are to your Mommy. (Had to throw that one in there. :-) ) You are sweet, happy, fun, loving. You are beautiful. I'm a lucky, lucky Mommy. I'm very happy that you're my baby boy.

We love you so much, Peter! Happy first birthday!

Ok, totally random...found your blog via Brittany S. But I have to ask...did you love Abraham Verghese's Cutting for Stone? I have read My Own Country and The Tennis Partner and loved them both. Haven't really found anyone else who reads his stuff, so I'd love to hear what you thought about his most recent one!

Ha! Maybe we should exchange email addresses rather than keep commenting on blogs...if you love My Own Country, let me know and I'll mail you The Tennis Partner. I've been wanting to find someone to pass it on to. My husband and I went to medical school where My Own Country is set, so it meant so much to us. I cried several times in it, but I won't give away any details!
