365 days ago...

After 15 hours of hard labor...

and one ridiculously easy push...

we welcomed this little bundle of cheeks into the world.
I looked out the window to view the sun coming up over the Wasatch front, while I experienced the sunrise of a new life. Magic.
They took you away from me. And poked and prodded your tiny little hands.

I didn't get to see you for too long, but then they brought you back to me.

Your daddy wouldn't leave the hospital for 2 days to go home and take a shower. He didn't want to leave mommy alone, or you. Mommy had to make him go... he was getting pretty greasy.
We gave you the name Ethan Matthew, after your Uncle Matty. Who loves you, so much.

It hasn't been an easy year, Ethan, but you've been an angel for us, even though it hasn't always been heaven.
You were a surprise.
A big one.
I wasn't really ready for you.

But I sure am glad the Lord had better plans. I love you Ethan-baby. Happy Birthday.

PS. Pictures of the day's festivities will follow soon.
