Dear Denver

Dear Denver,

It is New Year's Eve. Exactly one year ago today I found out that you existed. It was the morning of December 31st, 2009, and your daddy was in Dallas helping Uncle Flu plan his proposal to your Aunt Erin. I woke up, took a pregnancy test (well, two tests, because I couldn't believe it), and then waited all day until your dad got home so I could tell him the news. We were pretty excited... can you tell?

The next morning, I woke up and we began documenting your journey. This is our first picture of you in my belly.

You were so tiny! I read that you were probably about as big as one of these...

That's just one grain of rice! When I look at you now, it is hard to believe that just one year ago you weren't even as big as your pinky finger. Now I think I understand why people say that life is a miracle.

You are growing into such a sweet boy. Just look at you now!

You have already brought so much joy and laughter into my life. And you're not even four months old. I can't wait to see what 2011 holds for us.

  1. Dear Denver,
    You were the highlight of my 2010. I found out about you on January 2nd (the day before I left for Kolkata) and had to keep you a secret. It was super difficult because I was imploding with joy. I am so grateful for you and your wonderful parents.
