a year in the life : tucker 2012

my sweet, spunky tucker man. gathering up the pictures for your year was absolutely the funniest thing i've done in a while. you are a fireball my little buddy. and every picture screams your personality that is fiery and precious both at the same time. you are authentic and have no reservations. your carefree personality draws others to you but you don't allow them to influence you in any way, shape, or form. you are definitely your own person and watching you develop this year has been one of extreme adventure, patience, and created a deeper love for a child a lot like your momma. 

{january. you had your guns out from the beginning of the year to the end. you are always in your own world and have a story to share. this was just the beginning of seeing that develop in you.}

{february. caught you looking at the camera for once. you and i spent our tuesday and thursday mornings together sharing stories and adventures.}

{march. you live life hard and full. this is just a glimpse of the joy we see daily in you.}

{april. you have an extreme love affair with any bug you can get your hands on. not only bugs, though they are a favorite, you love any animal and are enthralled by every aspect. i am so appreciative of this quality in you and am learning to nurture it with everything in me.}

{may. you turned three. this picture is perfect and will forever remind me of you in this year.  your love for the outdoors, especially fishing, went through the roof. you sleep with a fishing pole, tackle box, worms, etc. you are a passionate young man.}

{june. i love this picture of you jumping in, arms out, ready to make a big splash.}

{july. we found all sorts of critters this year and you were the first one to take initiative to care for, play with, and make sure we all were properly acquainted. you are a boy to your very core.}

{august. i love this photo because it shows your tender side. you are quite the snuggler and hold your bear bear close by.}

{september. i could not pick just one photo for this month. i tried and tried but this first one is that smile. it is genuine and full. full of all things that make you you. the second is what you spent your time at the beach doing. looking for fishermen that would let you fish with their gigantic fishing pole. and you caught one!!!! it made your entire life.}

{october. we spent the month hiking and camping. you play in this world at home nonstop so when we actually got to do it, you were in heaven. you are all in, all the time. and now have real experiences to replay in your own little world at home.}

{november. that joy again. it's written all over you. a pile of leaves, a new flashlight, a full backpack ready for adventure. those sure bring about that smile.}

{december. we loved living the christmas season with you. everything was exciting and anticipated. you loved the decorations, the tree, the stories, the crafts, the cookies, everything about it.}

life with the tuck man this year was nothing less than adventurous. i use that word a lot for him because that is his world. whether it's imaginative or real, it's adventurous. as we think and dream about the plans God has for him, we know they are exciting!
