Happy Birthday Baby Davis

Dearest Davis,

Today you are 1! We could not have imagined one year ago, how much joy you would bring us. Your father and I are blessed with a happy and healthy baby boy. You entered the world in your own way and quickly showed us that life will never be the same. You have blessed both families with the first grandchild and nephew. You have loving grandparents in California and Mississippi who live for daily photos and videos of you. Your uncles reside in New York City, Northern California and China and your aunts in Northern California, DC and North Carolina. They love you dearly and each think they are going to have the most influence on your coolness and world views. You have spent your first year accomplishing each milestone ahead of schedule and staying high in the percentiles of height and weight. I think this is from the Medley side. You have had your share of bumps and bruises and yet this is only the beginning of what we believe to be a very active and athletic life. You are beginning to talk and show your personality. You mimic and quickly lean new expressions from us. You love to swim, dance and sing. You love your daddy and call him by name. During the day you hold objects to your ear like a phone and say "dada, dada?". Your dada and I love you more than anything in the world dear Davis. Happy 1st Birthday to our sweet Baby Davis.
