It's amazing that we have had Enzo for 12 months. Tami and I were talking on our way to her sister's house for Enzo's birthday party; reminiscing about the day Enzo got out of the womb. Well, we've been reminiscing for a couple of days with "remember what we were doing a year ago?" Three days of contractions and 15 hours in the hospital gives a lot of "one year ago right now" reminiscing range to work with. And then, 12:03 pm happened and Enzo was peacefully asleep for a nap. I remember the nap we got after Enzo was settled in, after he was born. Tami and I were exhausted. Surely, Tami was more exhausted than I, and I was super exhausted. What an amazing event Enzo's birth was. What a powerful and significant experience that was. And now, this beautiful kid walks around, has 6 teeth, smiles a lot, likes to make noises, likes to play with Maggie (cat) and Monte (dog). He gets happy to see his mom and dad and likes to be held by us. He laughs like crazy sometimes, especially with loud kisses to his belly. He has the sweetest baby cheeks to kiss. This year with him has been spectacular. He is happy and beautiful and we are so lucky to be a family.
One year old. His first lap around the sun.
Here are a few pictures from Enzo's birthday party.
