I'm in denial. On his birthday cake, I only had them write "Jude," no "Happy Birthday."
It just doesn't seem right that a year has passed. It could have something to do with the fact that he still wakes as often as a newborn.
He's a bit of a ham. He's not that happy, chubby baby that grins and babbles with every passer-by. In fact, the best way to describe him is: Sean. In a smaller body.
He has no time for chitter chat. The picture below made me step back in time eleven years. He looks EXACTLY like Simon did at this age. All the way down to his little nostrils.
We are all smitten. Just flat out in love with the kid.
Happy Birthday, Judelet.
