34: MeMoraBle MoMenTs *As a newborn, you pooped on Daddy and made him squeal. Twice... and we laughed. Then you peed on Mommy, so he got to laugh, too. At two months old, you had finally gotten the hang of nursing. During one nursing session, you balled your fists on either side of Mommy's boob and squeezed. You sprayed yourself in the face with milk. Mommy laughed. A lot. At three months, Aunt Britnee Rae gave you a crunchy Cheeto. You loved it so much that you sucked on it until it was nothing more than a squishy pile of orange jelly in your hand. At 17 weeks, Mommy and Daddy went to Taco Bell before a movie. Mommy was blowing raspberries on your tummy and you laughed out loud for the first time. The next day, you rolled from your tummy to your back for the first time. At 24 weeks, you rolled from your back to your tummy and got angry because you had pinned your arm underneath you and couldn't move
35: I'm sure we have plenty more memorable moments to come and I hope that I remember to write all of the little things down as you begin to learn and grow. Mommy and Daddy love to watch you grow and learn and begin interacting with us. We love seeing your beautiful personality develop as each day goes by.

47: Mommy and Daddy didn't ask for anything for Christmas this year. We already had the greatest gift that God could have blessed us with. We had you. You loved your first Christmas tree.. You would lay under it for hours and watch the lights. You even managed to pull a ball off the tree and tried to chew on it.
49: Daddy gave you your very first peppermint Candy Cane
