Being Carly

Happy Birthday, Calvin



Our son turns one today.

This time last year, I was so nervous. So unsure about having a little boy. So unsure about having two kids. So unsure if he’d even be healthy after all the trouble we had together.

This year, he is nothing but joy.


I scooped him up the other day and realized he’s already losing a bit of that dirty wiggly puppy plumpness. Every day he gets a little taller, a little leaner, and those baby words come out a little more clearly. “Up! Up, Mama! Eva! Ball! Dad! Dad Dad Dad Dad Dad Baby UP!”

Happy birthday to our bright, beautiful boy. We love watching you grow. Thank you so much for coming to us!

This personalized first birthday onesie was a gift from our friends at Petite Lemon and it has his birthday on it. Such a cute keepsake! He’ll probably be showing up in it again when we have his birthday party in a few weeks…things got a little off schedule when Mama left town!
