Happy Birthday Baby Koen!!

Where did this year go??!! Today is my sweet Baby Koen's FIRST birthday. I am in shock that my baby boy is ONE. A whole year old. Just one short year ago I saw him for the very first time. I held him so tight. It seems like yesterday. He gave me a run for my money while inside of me... but he sure has made up for it in his first year! Koen is the sweetest baby I have ever known. So happy. So carefree. So lovable. So perfect. Words can't describe the joy he has brought to our family.

He has gotten so big and has developed the BEST personality. He loves his brothers. He is a daddy's boy. He loves to bounce and dance. He watches. He learns. He says Mama, Dada, Nana, Baba, and Uh- Oh. He cruises the furniture. He jumps on Karson's toddler bed and laughs SO hard. He takes a nap at 11:30 everyday like clockwork. He loves ice cream. He goes to sleep without a fight. He climbs the stairs faster than I can. He loves the puppies. He loves his kiki right by his face. He LOVES to smile.

Happy Birthday Koen Richard. I love you so much. You are my little ray of sunshine. No matter how old you get, you will always be my Baby Koen.

I want the very best for him in life, and can't wait to see how he grows over the next year. Here is a little journey through his first year in pictures. I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as I did!

Sweet, happy, cuddly...PERFECT! I cannot count how many times that little smile has brought a smile to my face! I can't believe he is already a year! I love you Baby Koen! Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!!
