Dear Milo -

I don't even know where to start! My little boy, my baby, is ONE YEAR OLD! A toddler now! Its so crazy and amazing to me, I feel like I don't even know how it happened so fast!
You are learning so much so fast now. In the last month you have learned to feed yourself finger foods (finally!), and now love to feed US your food too. So cute! You love to eat everything and I've taken to calling you the human trash compactor because you eat so much sometimes!
You have stood independently, then taken your first steps and now are walking! You get usually about 10-12 steps at this point, but I think it won't be too long before you are running all over the place as you have progressed this far so fast from when you started your first steps. Once you figure out you can get some where walking just as fast as crawling then I think you're going to be unstoppable!
You have developed a very distinct personality and you are definitely your own little person now. You have perfected the tantrum, where you throw yourself on the floor and roll onto your side and scream. It is, truthfully, so cute that its impossible to mad! You are also into EVERYTHING right now! You love to explore everything and have more fun checking things out around the house then playing with toys. You understand no, but sometimes choose to ignore it and are all about testing boundaries right now (hence the adorable tantrums sometimes.)
I truly don't even know where to begin. This past year has been the most amazing, incredible, unbelievable year ever! You are the light of our lives, and really, I can barely even remember what our lives were like without you. It hasn't always been easy, but there isn't a single second that I would trade for anything in the world. I have loved every minute and can't wait to see what joy and excitement the next year brings!
We love you so much, our perfect little man!
