Reflecting on a Year

K3 turned one yesterday. One!  I'm having all the emotions about it because it feels like he was born yesterday and forever ago all at the same time. It's one of those "the days are long, but the years are short" things,  but sometimes it feels like the days just aren't long enough.

We aren't celebrating with a big party until next month because we are in the middle of moving hell, but all the boys are enjoying little celebrations of everything we have accomplished as a family this year. We adapted to being a family of 5, we planned and enjoyed a big wedding, we traveled, I returned to work, Keith changed jobs, we sold two houses,  and next week we will buy our dream house.  It's been a whirlwind of good things happening, which I have not taken for granted, and I feel is reflected in the super joyful disposition of K3.

He knows how to work a room, and everyone who meets him falls in love.  We have had so many laughs this year because of this little guy, and the happiness he brings to our family is immeasurable.  As much as I yell at JD and O to be kind to each other and play nicely, when it comes to K3, I have only had to remind them to give him some space and don't smother him with snuggles.  They adore their baby, and I hope that doesn't wear off once he gets tall enough to reach all the toys.

I will have posts about the wedding (so many fun projects!) and the move (the projects will never end), but right now that can all wait so I can enjoy this summer at home with my boys.
