Summary:

The first year of their son's life comes with many ups and downs, many milestones and even more smiles.

 

 

(This is a three-part sequel to illuminate the heart. I have included a brief recap of that fic in case you haven't read it or have forgotten what happened. Since this story is just one big ball of fluff, you don't necessarily need to read the longer fic that preceded it, although I recommend it to understand the details better.)
