You light up our life, you blue-eyed baby boy. The second you walk through our door and let out your excited screech you make us feel like we are the most important people in your world. You were born at a perfect time in our life because Grandpa and I have a lot of free time to watch your robust and delightful personality come alive. You are so adorable. This past year you’ve entertained us with your nuggles, giggles and sweet sounds. You learned to walk at eleven months and you are trying hard to talk. Every day you amaze us.
You and Grandpa have a very strong bond. When I watch you two together it warms my heart because Grandpa is in his glory, especially while you sit quietly on his lap as he reads you a story. For some reason Grandpa can get you to slow down and sit quiet as a mouse. One day Grandpa was pushing me in my wheelchair and he laid you on top of me so you were staring up at the ceiling. You laid so still that grandpa started pushing us from room to room showing you the pictures on our walls and you continued to lie still so Grandpa kept going for about ten minutes and then we heard a sweet snoring sound and you were sleeping. Ever since that day every time we do this you lie unbelievably still for a busy one-year-old. You even do the motor sound just like Grandpa. I think this is my favorite thing to do with you.
We love you so much, Harrison.
Grandpa and Grandma
