Ohhhh - what are you doing here?
I can't beleive a year ago today was one of the most horriffic and wonderful days of my life. It's amazing to see how much he has grown in such a short time. Hard to beleive it's been a year already. He's walking all over the place and totally loves to play with cars. He makes the little vvrrrmmmm noise when he 'drives' the cars back and forth on the carpet. He's climbing up and down the stairs and says momma, dadda, and baby. Mark pulled into the driveway a few nights ago and Johnny pointed to the car and said DAAAD! I almost fell over. He's getting so big and smart :) Everyday I love him more and he is constantly making me laugh. He and I have a lot of tickle time together. He also loves to play Hide and seek! He will go into his room and close the door. I'll stand in the hallway and say, "where's johnny" and you can hear him giggling behind the door. I'll slowly open the door and peek behind it and sure enough he's there with a HUGE grin on his face and squealing with delight! It's one of the most precious things in the world!
I swear he knew it was his birthday today because he was up at 5:43 this am and just smiling and cooing to himself in his crib. He was all fired up to go for the day! Mommy gave him a bottle and got him back down but it wasn't for long...
We have his birthday party on Saturday. We are excited. It should be fun to see all of our friends and family.
where does the time go!
My hope for you my precious boy is that you grow up to be a kind man. An honest, caring, fair, genuine, sweet natured, a replica of the awesome men before you. Your great grandpa Swanson and your namesake pappy spike :) as well as your wonderul grandpa Jim. Whom you share the same initials with. I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living, my baby you'll be!
I love you my little Johnny cakes!
