One year ago, at 9:18 am on a sunny late winter's day in Manitoba, our little William was born.
Like all babies, he has done a massive amount of growing over the last year. Only a few weeks after his birth we found out that we would be moving to Japan and so the first months of his life were full of packing, moving, and change. I think that this has helped him to be a pretty flexible and laid back baby that doesn't mind new faces, new places, and a general lack of routine.
Here is quick look at the past 12 months of his life:
|March 2011 - 0 months old|
|April 2011 - 1 month old|
|May 2011 - 2 months old|
|June 2011 - 3 months old|
|July 2011 - 4 months old|
|August 2011 - 5 months old|
|September 2011 - 6 months old|
|October 2011 - 7 months old|
|November 2011 - 8 months old|
|December 2011 - 9 months old|
|January 2012 - 10 months old|
|February 2012 - 11 months old|
|March 2012 - 1 year old!|
As you can see, his features are finally starting to become a bit more solid and unchanging, giving us a glimpse of what he will look like when he is older. His personality is still a bit of a mystery, but one thing we do know is that he thinks his older brother is fantastic. Fortunately for us, Theo has loved his brother from the moment he arrived. He never went through a jealous, send him back where he came from stage. Here are a few moments of brotherly solidarity:
|So happy to have a baby in the house|
|Always a willing patient in Theo's doctor games|
|Hanging out his big brother in the hospital|
|Cuddling on the big pillow|
|All dressed up in the girly (sorry mom!) knitted outfit my|
grandma made me
|Hanging on for dear life|
Tonight we had celebratory dinner in celebration of one great year with William in our life.

crushing and throwing around than eating

We love you William!
Too cute! They're both amazing boys.
You are so blessed with those boys! I'm sure he has his moments, but William seems to be such a cheerful, contented sort of boy. Like his mom as a tot, and still is today.
Thanks for this post. It is so wonderful to see pictures of these sweet boys. I can't wait to see them in real life!
