One Year

Yay! One year ago just now, Oren was born. He was seven weeks early,
and we were really surprised to meet him so early. Hayden had been a
real trooper at the hospital; she showed incredible bravery, I think.
Having a baby looks scary.

We've had a lot of fun getting to know him this year. He's walking
around now, taking corners on two feet, chattering all the time. He
likes it when I spin and toss and flip him around, and he likes
sitting on my shoulders. Everyone says he's a "good", "easy" baby.
People love to comment on his blue eyes.

One lady at Baptist Village in Lake Park, Georgia, told my Mom that he
has "dancing blue eyes". She was a school teacher, and she said that
the little boys with "dancing blue eyes" are always exciting. Or
mischievous. Or maybe it was rambunctious. Anyway, something like that.

We got him a toy piano for his birthday -- but don't tell him yet!
