Happy Birthday Marshall!

I can hardly believe it's been a whole year already.

March 16,2010.

In the wee hours of the morning of March 15, 2010, Marshall entered our family, weighing only 7 lbs.
On Tuesday, he'll be turning 1, and weighing nearly 2o lbs (we'll find out later this week exactly). Where does the time go?

Marshall has been an amazingly great baby!!
From an easy and uncomplicated pregnancy, to a baby who slept through the night from 1 month old, to the smiley, happy, and healthy baby he is at nearly 1 year old. We have been blessed.
Marshall has been somewhat of an experimental baby for me :). I decided to take a new route with him, just for fun and for something different, since he is my last little baby. This time around, we made homemade baby food and fed breast milk instead of formula, we made a make-shift nursery in our walk-in closet, and both Peter and I used our baby sling much more often, including almost daily still.
It's been a fun and new experience, but now our baby is becoming a toddler. He's already standing with furniture and will soon be walking and independent. He'll soon be leaving his room in our closet and moving in with his big brothers down the hall.
Even as he continues to grow and change, though, he'll always be my baby and I will always remember him in that way.

Happy Birthday Marshall, we love you so much!!
