Happy Birthday Dexter!

Today is the first birthday of my son, Dexter Robert.  Named for the boy genius Dexter and Robert after his dad, he has been such a joy in my life.  We tried so hard, so very very hard, to have him.  After his sister, we tried for two years to get pregnant.  We had two losses.  We planned for an adoption.  And then bam! Dexter was coming.

And we took the necessary bump pictures
 We announced that we were having a boy by cutting into a cake
 And then before we knew it, he was here

He is such a joy.  Granted, he has his troubles with strangers looking at him or touching him, but he's getting better.  He started taking his first steps about a week ago and the way he figures things out just blows my mind.

I love him so very much and I can tell you without a doubt, he was well worth the wait.

Happy Birthday my little man!!!


Leave me some love! I read them all and it always makes me feel warm and fuzzy when people comment!
