Wow, just like that, our little Otto is not so little any more. Today is his first birthday, and it seems as if  I've loved him my whole life. I've been very reminiscent that past few days and it has been so fun to look back at this year of photos. Taking his weekly pictures was not something that I had planned to do or given any thought too. It simply started with me taking a photo of him in the hospital, and exactly one week later, he was wearing the same outfit and I thought to myself "I should take his picture and see how much he's changed in a week." I got such a fun response from friends that I decided to continue it, and I'm sure glad I did. My only wish is that I would have thought to do this with my other two!
Here's where it all began... 
Sweet baby Otto... 

And here we are today. Happy first birthday to my sweet little love. My heart feels as though it could burst with all the love it holds for you. My wish for you is that you will always be as happy and care free as you are today, and always remember how very much I love you.
