Happy Birthday Dorian, the best and most amazing miracle that I was blessed to be a part of in creating, and the most fantastic chapter in my life. I cannot believe how fast a year has gone by, I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday and to see him now, walking around and trying to run already is amazing, and he's already showing an independent streak. Rather than being held, he'd rather walk around himself. It is just crazy, awesome and also sad to know that a year has flown and my little boy is growing up. I love him so much.

I know this is cliché, but you have to soak this up. The next thing you know, he will be all grown up. Grats and best wishes to you and the little man.
Thank you, I am going to try and soak up every second the best I can. I didn't think I would be one of "those" mothers that want to hang on, but after seeing him suddenly become independent and not wanting to really be held (started yesterday), I felt even more needy and craved that dependency more than I thought I would.
Such a sweet picture.
Happy birthday to your boy!

I started a blog about running :) Check it out if you care to
Of course the day in which both of you run your first St. Louis HM together, you'll need to post that picture too. Congratulations to you as a mother and Happy Birthday to Dorian.

Happy Birthday to the Little One!
Happy bday to your son.
Thanks ya'll, yes I will. Though I will try to constantly remind myself not to push him too much, and to let him enjoy it and do it if he wants but I have a feeling he might be a natural (we all basically are really) and he doesn't give up on a task until he accomplishes it. He is already so focused on things, he focused on perfecting crawling, then cruising and walking and now barely a month after starting to walk he is trying walk fast and run. It is just amazing to watch a baby (of any animal but especially my own baby) grow from two little organisms, be born helpless and 100% dependent on me and now a year later he thinks he's all independent and can do it all by himself. I love him so much.
