Happy 1st Birthday Calvin Baby!!!!!

Oh, Calvy boy.

 It's been a year since you joined our family.  You've brought more joy to your brother, sisters, dad and me than you could ever imagine.  You have softened everyone's heart and have brought peace to our home in our most stressful moments.  You have snuggled with your mama, played with your siblings, given your dad big laughs and have entertained us endlessly.  Your sisters still fight to get you out of bed every morning and hold you during the day.  Nixon wants to play with you non-stop.  And your mom and dad could just stare at your cute, cute face and give you kisses all day long.  You've been incredibly independent, which comes with the territory in a large family, and you've kept yourself busy and happy.  Your favorite hangout is the toy box, although all you've really needed is a car to push around the floor or a ball to throw.  You've got a great arm and you make the best car noises :) 
          You've slept like a champ, eaten like a champ, traveled like a champ and have been nothing short of an angel baby.  I am glad we ended our child bearing years with such a great little boy.  All the sickness, aches and pains of pregnancy were worth every second I've had with you.  I can't wait to see what the future brings and I can't wait for you and your siblings to become best friends who love, play, and look out for each other.  I love you with all my heart,

*Calvin had a wonderful birthday.  He devoured his smash cake and was thrilled to get lots of cars to push around.  There were lots of cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents to smother him with hugs, kisses and presents.
