Oops, I just realized I haven't uploaded the birthday pictures yet. We celebrated a few days after AJ's actual birthday, but I took this picture on April 22, AJ's birth-day. I can't believe my baby is 1. He is growing up so fast. He cruises everywhere and even lets go sometimes, but he has yet to take a step on his own. He is a happy baby and loves to clap and sway to any music! He has started emptying cupboards and his older siblings are constantly tattling on him for making messes, and they look so dumbfounded when I tell them it's okay and not to worry about it:) We love having this little guy in our family.
AJ is special for so many reasons, but one special thing about AJ is that he was born on Grandma Tuckett's birthday. Grandma Tuckett had a twin brother who passed away just a few weeks before AJ was born. We gave AJ the middle name Douglas so we could always remember my mom's twin brother and the great man he was. We miss you Uncle Doug!!!
