Happy birthday to my little adventurer! 🎂🥳 🎉 While I knew I always wanted kids, I knew nothing about them and felt unprepared even up until the moment I was going into labor. This little guy has made parenting much easier than I ever expected it to be and brought a type of joy to my life I didn’t know I was missing. I love that he now enjoys traveling, hiking, being in the snow, and basically anything outside like his mama, and can’t wait to watch him develop more and more of his own bubbly personality. #toddlerbirthday
