I missed blogging on your birthday, but I didn’t miss the day. It was a fun day!
One year ago, you entered into the world and into our family. You were loved for months even before you were born.
I’ll never forget the Sunday lunch when your Mommy and Daddy told us you were on the way. The customers at Beef O’Brady’s wondered what was wrong with that crazy woman screaming. Now it’s already been a whole year! Happy Birthday sweet baby boy.
This last year has been full of so much joy. You! Now we could never imagine a day without you.
While scrolling through pictures, my heart aches and bursts with joy all in the same breath. I’m so grateful for moments and memories.
The moments shared on the porch swing are priceless
The lack of sleep and unending devotion by your Mommy
We celebrated with so many the day your Mommy and Daddy dedicated to raise you with Gods help
One day I’ll tell you how much your Pappa loved you.
Some pictures are just because.
Your had your first visit to the pumpkin patch
Your Pops loves you as much as you love him.
Wedding day memories with Great PawPaw
Such a happy baby
Teaching you the importance of being kind and generous to our neighbors when we passed out Christmas goodies
Christmas has a whole new excitement with a baby
You learned Infant Survival Swimming
We celebrated mommy’s birthday with Uncle Kyle
More porch swinging
Warm weather means outside and drinking from the hose
You got your first real boo boo
There are times when you sit still
Easter was fun!
Fire pit with the Uncles is a favorite pastime.
Baby Peekaboo is my favorite
Porch sittin is Jack and BB’s thing
We sing and laugh and play. We watch the cars. Cars are your favorite. Your Great Papa giggles from heaven every time you say “caaar” like you live in Boston.
This doesn’t even need a caption.
You started going to HopeKids!!! You are such a big boy.
You are so silly
You have leaned to maneuver alone and you make yourself heard from all parts of our home.
You are an expert stair climber.
We spoke last night about how many words you can say and if you are on target with the experts recommendations. We counted over 15 words you say. However B.B. is not one of them. Why little man will you not say my name? Everyone else at home gets notified when they are in the room with you. Am I anxious for you to include me in your names? Yes of course. However when you crawl quickly towards me, smiling from ear to ear while laughing and screaming Hi!! I will accept whatever you want to do and whatever you want to call me.
I have documented every month for your first year and as I look back, I am so grateful for moments to jog the sometimes vague memories.
You, my sweet boy, will forever be the first grandchild. You taught us what it was like to be a Pops and a B.B. and we will always treasure your first year of life.
Friends that are already grandparents told us that it would be amazing and that there was nothing like it. They were right. It is an unexplained love for another human being. You, Jack William Wissinger have surpassed our hopes and dreams.
Here’s your first day as a one year old.
Happy Birthday sweet baby boy! We could not love you more.
Saturday we celebrate!!!
