Another Year is Dawning

Thursday, January 04, 2007

A New Year has begun and an old year has come to a close. Last year we were waiting hopefully for our baby to be born; this year he's crawling around my feet trying to see what yummy snack I'm eating. Last year Eli and I were coming up on our first wedding anniversary; now our second is fast approaching. Another year of experiences has gone by, another year spent living and growing together has passed, leaving us closer and happier.

Christmas for us was a merry day of giving and receiving, visiting and eating, building new toys and playing new games. We were able to spend a part of the day with each of our families and still spend some time at home finishing Advent and exchanging presents between just us. Joshua didn't really understand the fact that he was getting all kinds of new stuff. He had more fun "begging" cinnamon rolls off of generous relatives.

In a surprisingly few number of days Joshua's birthday will come upon us and our little baby will be a whole year old. It's hard to believe, but looking at him it's obvious that he's ready to take on the new status of a one-year-old. He points with his pointer finger, drinks out of a sippy cup, opens kitchen cupboards, plays peek-a-boo, and goes around the house babbling, "Tickle, tickle, tickle!" (At least that's what it sounds like.) He's not a little baby anymore!
