Iñigo is one!

I can't believe it. I can't believe it's been a year.

I thought I already knew a lot about infants after having Vito but Iñigo taught me a lot of new things, too. Like attachment parenting. Vito was always independent. I liked that; it gave me lots of me time. But Iñigo is my baby kangaroo—he just wants to be stuck to me all day long. At first, this suffocated me. But pretty soon, I learned to let go of my need to be alone. I think that made me a better mommy not just to Iñigo but to Vito, too.

We love how sweet Iñigo is. He's a gentle soul. He's very chill, very quiet, very peaceful. He calms me down. He calms Vince down. Yes, it's the other way around.

He's funny, too. Not flat-out hilarious like his older brother but he knows how to make us laugh with little kisses ("Mwah!") and his penchant for putting his right foot up when he eats. Iñigo's charm is subtle but still deadly. That makes him just like his daddy!

We really truly love this gentle baby. He doesn't cry a lot, he likes to play with Vito, he likes cuddling with his Mama and his Papa, he's very easily pacified, he likes to sleep and eat. Oh, how he likes to eat!

He is our sweetheart! He's so sweet and affectionate and he totally adores us, especially Vito. When someone so adorable thinks you're amazing, life just gets more incredible.

Thank you, Iñigo, for coming to our lives one year ago! Every day has been a gloriously happy day.

Happy first birthday, our dearest darling baby boy!
