Judah turned 1!!

So Judah turned 1 about two weeks ago, and I totally forgot to document it on here! What?! So here we go...

     Judah Preston, has turned 1! I cannot believe it. They always say time goes by faster with the second one, but holy cow! A whole year already?!
     When I first found out I was pregnant with Judah, I was devastated. I was. We were not planning on having another baby so soon, and we were still dealing with Trevor healing. Jeremiah was only 4 months old when I got pregnant with Judah, and I cried in the bathroom for a really long time, scared out of my mind as to what this meant for me if Trevor died and left me with two babies.
     His pregnancy went by super fast. I don't really remember a lot of it. Most likely this is due to the fact that I had a baby, a recovering husband who was going to school full time and working, and I was working full time. It seriously felt like I was pregnant for just a couple of months. 

     The longer I was pregnant, the more I embraced the idea of having two so close together. Jeremiah would have a little playmate, and they would grow up to be super close buds. My sister and I are exactly the same amount of months apart as these two are! How crazy is that! I eventually came to terms with the fact that if Trevor were to die, I could and would do this on my own very well. With a lot of help of course, but God knows what He is doing and I trust Him! 
 I got so big with Judah. This is on Halloween night, 17 days before we had him. I honestly don't remember feeling that big! I remember looking in the mirror while I stood sideways and just being utterly shocked by the size of my belly! 
 Here you can read his birth story...it's quite intense! I sure hope this next one is a little more peaceful, but I just want a healthy baby boy. 

Here he is the moment he was born...

and a year later...

*Judah started walking right around his first birthday!! It's so cute to see him waddling around!

*He has quite the 1yr old vocabulary, including 
-Mama -Dada -Puppy -Uhoh -Byebye -Hi Rylie and others!

*He loves to wrestle with his big brother! He still gets pretty beat up, but he's learning to defend himself! 

*He stopped using a bottle, sleeps through the night every night, and evens eats his veggies! 

*He weighs 22lbs

*He loves a good laugh, and nobody can make him laugh like his big brother

I love you Judah Preston! I'm so glad you are a part of this family!
