12 months.
not a clue how we've gotten here. and how a whole year has passed since our sweet baby boy entered this world. last year at this time I was completely consumed & in hibernation with my sweet little 8lb 2oz newborn. soaking in every bit of him and trying my hardest to be in the moment, cause it all goes too fast
and now i've got this big 26lb 3oz one year old baby who's on the verge of looking full blown toddler.
he's still the sweetest darn thing.
and has doubled the joy in our family over these last twelve months.

tanner loves to eat. have yet to find a food that he completely rejects.
he gives big 'ol open mouth kisses which melt my heart each and every time. 
he has a contagious giggle that fills the room with joy.
babbles + babbles all day long.
has one solid word. mama :)
understands almost everything we say to him.
is his sister's little tagalong.
has started walking, but is still preferring to crawl.
already pushes the limits on things he knows he's not suppose to do.
is growing way too fast. and yet at the same time, growing at just the right pace. cause each and every phase and month just gets better and I know without a doubt in my mind that it will only continue.
you're more precious to me than you'll ever know my sweet boy. and oh I just can't WAIT to see what fun you will be in these months ahead!
mama loves you!!
