Tucker is 12 months old! I have been working and planning out this picture in my mind for months. It isn't perfect, but I still love it.
I can't believe it has been a year since I held my purple brused-faced little boy for the first time. Oh what fun memories . . . waiting all day for the call, finally driving from Syracuse to the American Fork Hospital, experiencing labor (not fun), getting an epidural and immediately after, feeling the need to push, then waiting 40 minutes to push for my photographer to get there . . . good times. Best of all, holding our precious little baby on my chest for the first 45+ minutes for his life. It was one wonderful day.
Tucker is getting more and more fun every day. While there are still difficult things about him, the good outweigh the bad. I love watching him walk all over the house discovering new fun things to get into every day. I love listening to he and Jada in the next room laughing and playing together, melts my heart. I love that he can point to things and let us know what he wants, and best of all, I love that he sleeps through the night completely, 6:30PM-7:15AM baby!!! It's about time.
