happy first birthday andrew quinn!

wow! drew is a year old! every day i think to myself, "this little boy has me wrapped around his little finger!". here are 12 of my favorite things about drew to commorate his 12 months of life!!!

1. he's the best cuddler--he nuzzles up to my neck and fits just right.

2. he has the most adorable little waddle. i love how cute babies are when they first start walking!

3. he has the funniest facial expressions!!! i remember this stage with sarah...we just marvel at how many ways he can contort his face. although, he usually just has a huge grin!!!

4. he adores his big sister. she can (typically) do no wrong. now, i cherish this because i know it won't always be the case!!!

5. he loves his puppies (and they love him)! he walks up to maggie and just falls on her back or pulls her beard. and maggie just sits there and lets him!

6. he's grown up so much since i started dropping him off at school and nursery during church. i'm amazed that the same kid who cried uncontrollably 6 months ago now lunges out of my arms!

7. he loves loves loves to eat! he can put away some serious amounts of food! and a new favorite as of the past few days--sugar!

8. he loves to clap his hands along with sarah and me when we are singing in the car! he always tries to "keep up with sarah".

9. he falls asleep in the car and i can carry him in the house and just plop him in his crib while he stays asleep! this is not all that cosmic with most families, but sarah NEVER fell asleep in the car, so its revolutionary around here!!!

10. he already throws temper tantrums! talk about "monkey see, monkey do" around here. he always tries to get to the dog bowls whenever the laundry room door is open. when i beat him to the punch, he falls down on his belly and fake cries. its hilarious to see a one year old pout!!!

11. he's such a laid back little guy. he usually just chills when he's in his stroller or carseat. he sits still in a way that wild big sis never did. he especially loves when he's all bundled up in his coat with a blanket and his pacifer...i think he would sleep in his bed that way if i would let him!

12. he's just my favorite son in the whole wide world! as i've mentioned before, this is a long standing joke in our fam...i don't know what i'll do when we don't just have ONE son and ONE daughter to call our favorites :)
