one year ago...

WARNING: the following post maybe hazardous to your tear ducts. it may cause an excessive amount of damage to your mascara and\or make-up application in general, and a little tug on your ovaries in a "i-gotta-get-me-one-of-those" kind of way. proceed with the utmost of caution! ;)

so our little\big man turns one today. it is almost impossible to believe that this tiny baby, who spent five days in the nicu, is a big, babbling, WALKING (yes he is taking about six-ten steps now) boy. look at this football comparison...

so hard to believe! so here's a little stroll down memory lane.

clif and i decided we should probably have one last "date" before the baby came. this is two days before bauer was born.

and here is the morning of...it never ceases to amaze me just how BIG one's nose can get! (or belly for that matter!)

the debut moment (folks, this is never before seen footage).....awwwww!!!

that is one happy momma...

and a pretty happy, proud daddy, too!

sweet little man in the nicu.

big sister loving little brother, and mommy loving those kiddos. what a blessing you are in our lives, mr. bauer. i cannot imagine a day without your beautiful, smiling face. we love you so much, and thank god for choosing us as your parents! happy 1st birthday!! :)

Happy Birthday, Bauer. I remember those 5 days in NICU well and am so thankful that you are such a big beautiful boy! (i love the picture in the pea pod outfit...i remember the night we got it all dirty for mommy while we were getting weighed!)
Anyway, great pictures! Congrats on the playhouse!
Love,
Parker and Cilla
