It’s a Girl! Those words are typically shouted at gender reveal parties with pink balloons popping out of a box, but the Butcher family has an unusual way of finding out the gender of their babies in these modern times. They wait until the birth and find out the old fashioned way. There are few true surprises in our immediate-gratification lives, so I love that they choose to savor anticipation for so many months. Elise arrived a few days past her due date so that she could fatten up to an adorable, squishable nine pounds. Big sister Juliette is positively in love with her new baby sister and was a doll to photograph.

One year ago on this day, our platinum headed happy boy made his appearance on this earth. We all fell in love with him in no time at all and have cherished every snuggle, giggle and splash along the way. Dalton is very observant and studies the face of whomever is holding him multiple times over. He is very adventurous, taking his first steps at 8.5 months then giving up crawling at 10 months. He began climbing in and out of the bathtub at 11 months and can walk at a trot at 12 months. He loves to eat and would much rather feed himself. He will eat anything on his tray except for avocados or bananas. He positively adores his big brother Knox and even initiates the wrestling matches now that he can hold his own. He is extremely affectionate and crawls into my arms, lays his head on my chest and curls his body into a snuggle. He also loves to grab our cheeks and pull our faces to look at him, then wraps his little arms around our necks in a big hug. Dalton loves to join in on a giggle fest with mommy and big brother and often walks around squealing with delight at the top of his voice. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed by how sweet and amazing our little boys are. We acknowledge how fortunate and blessed we are that God chose us to be their parents.

Our sweet little fella is growing up so fast these days. He zooms around the house on his hands and knees exploring the reaches of his freedom, stopping to climb on the fireplace and push the rolling toys around. His favorite person is his big brother Knox who takes great delight in making him laugh. Dalton loves to eat real food and finally cut two teeth to help him devour even more!
