Happy (Half) Birthday Mr. H!

Today is Mr. H's 18 month birthday. I cannot believe that he is that old already. This kid is full of joy and silliness! He keeps us laughing. He gives the best slobber kisses and great big hugs. We love every single second we get to spend with our kiddo. I am so thankful God gave him to us and continues to bless our family daily.

Today Granna and I took Hunter swimming at a big pool for the first time. He swims in his little pool and in the hot tub regularly, but never in a big pool. He is a little fish! He was a little hesitant at first, but after a little lunch, he was ready to go. He wanted to wear his floaties on his arms and walk around the 2 foot pool, which is perfect for Mr. H! He tried to make friends with some of the bigger boys in the pool who threw the ball with him for a little while. Hunter loved it and laughed so hard. He tried copying the big boys who were jumping and swimming. He felt very big! He spent a lot of time just walking around in the water. As the day went on, he got braver and braver. Hunter played to exhaustion and a little beyond! He fell asleep soon after we got in the car to head home. Of course, once he got in his bed, he talked to himself for about 30 minutes before finally closing his little eyes.

We love you more than words sweet boy and wish you many many more (half) birthdays.
