The day after his surgery we closed on our new home! I was so excited to have this come to fruition, my dream home. About a week after closing we moved in on February 9th. My stress level decreased dramatically with the boys having their own room. It was a pretty easy transition. Justice seemed to go with the flow pretty well. Titus didn’t do very well at night, but that may have been from the surgery and he got a cold the end of February. Finally about the time of his first birthday, he got in a great rhythm of sleeping through the night. Finally!
Titus had his first birthday on March 5th. We had a small get together with my mother and ate BBQ, had cake and opened gifts. It was a St. Patty’s day theme as it was March. It was a blessing to celebrate my little guy’s first year. It was a tough year with RSV, surgery, sleeping in the living room, but glad to have his addition to our lives. He has enriched us so much with his sweet, yet serious side. At a year old, Titus cruises very well. He crawls very fast and will often crawl on his hands and feet with his booty up in the air so his knees aren’t on the carpet. He will especially do this when he is in shorts. He says “momma” “dada” and babbles with “ba”, “da”, and “may-may.” We hope he starts to talk more, adding new words, soon. He loves to be read to. His favorite book is about Trucks and gets excited and bounces as I read it to him. He loves to be outside. I put him out in the yard and he takes off crawling all over. When we go to the park he loves to swing and play in the sand. He is very content to play independently, but is also very affectionate and will crawl at full speed to come see me and cuddle.
On other news, we put our old house on the market for 30 days and we have a contract on it to sell. It is due to close on May 19th. God has really taken care of us! We are blessed!
