A Whole Year!
Our sweet little guy turned 1 – what joy and BLESSING we’ve experienced during the first 12 months of life that God has sustained. We are so thankful to get to watch him grow, and learn and explore this great big world. And, really, he only gets cuter and life only gets more and more enjoyable as we see his personality start to bloom and as he finds his place in this family of ours. Happy 1st Birthday Malachi Peace, how we love you so! (Buddy-boy experienced his first real sugary treat, and though he was a bit un-sure at first about the entire cake placed before him, he quickly got the hang of it and enjoyed licking some frosting!)
