happy birthday, stryker

my nephew turns 1 tomorrow.

to watch him grow week by week is so special. to have witnessed my sister become a mother over the past year has been so special. to squeeze the little man's cheeks and take in his squeals of delight, to see his chiclet teeth coming in hot, and to take in his ever changing personality and loving cuddles - it is all a blessing and so very special.

i am a proud auntie, already. happy birthday big guy! we love you so much!
