Dear Silas,

Today you are one year old. A toddling one year old at that. We celebrated your life this past weekend surrounded by family and friends. You are so lucky to be loved by so many. This past month you've grown into such a little man. You aren't a baby anymore. It's amazing to watch you grow and learn and discover and laugh and love. Your papa and I love you to the moon and back and more.

xo, Mama

Silas/ This weekend we visited uncle T in Chicago. We ate the most delicious foods, skidded around on hardwood floors, braved the cold, cold weather, terrorized Willis (the cat) and hung with some beautiful ladies, Robyn & Stacia. Papa and T will try to tell you all kinds of crazy stories about this weekend when you're older, but don't listen to them.
