Happy First Birthday Jonathan Douglas!

We are so blessed to have such a sweet baby boy in our family! What a wonderful year of discovery and growth!


This year JD has grown from a tiny helpless newborn, crying for everything he needed and gracing us with a sweet smile when we got it for him...







To an independent toddler, who can run around, ask for food (with lip smacks), say Mama and Dada and Bye-Bye and Uh-Oh.







At One Year, JD waves hello and goodbye, claps his hands, knows his favorite people, loves to play with bouncy balls and toys that make noise and light up, falls asleep all by himself, eats everything and anything.






JD is so friendly and easy-going - he will smile at anyone. He genuinely loves life and gets so excited to see new things.





I can't wait to see what this next year will bring for Jonathan Douglas!
