I'm going to be this many!
Today we are packing up and heading down to Kansas City to celebrate Topher's birthday with all 10 of his cousins. I went shopping for his presents last night and it surprised me how much I wanted to buy him everything. I'm usually not like that, but right now I feel like I want to give him the whole world. I settled on just a few fun toys, but as I was leaving I passed a clearance rack of diapers. They were all in his size, and all half off. Well, I couldn't pass that up so I bought every box they had. (I'm admittedly a bit of a diaper snob and will only use Huggies or--more rarely--Pampers, which we usually can't afford.) I think Topher had more fun with the big boxes than any other gift I could have bought him.
We've also recently discovered Topher's love of pillows. If you just throw a couple pillows on the ground, he will roll around, laugh, dive right in. It's adorable.
Topher, a year ago I had no idea who you were or what you would be like. Thank you for surpassing all our expectations and helping us become a little family. You went from being a bump in my tummy to being our universe, and we wouldn't have it any other way. We love you so much.
