today was silas' first birthday. my baby is growing up, sniff-sniff. he has been trying to walk lately. he spent all evening showing off that he could stand all alone. he will stand for a while and then sit down and clap. he is so loving, cuddly, and has quite a temper when it comes to eating or getting a drink. i love him so much. i love how he is so very different from ellie. i am excited to see what the god has in store for him.
