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.
