One year ago today...

We found out that we were expecting our first little one. The excitement was overwhelming. We found out on a Sunday evening (January 17, 2010). Texted the picture of the pregnancy test to my doctor (a good family friend of ours of course) and made an appointment to see her. We went to the movies that night and saw It's complicated. We giggled the rest of the night together! That Tuesday we went to the doctors to confirm. We didn't tell anyone the night we found out. It was our secret for a few days. That was VERY hard! We wanted to call everyone at the moment "pregnant" popped up. But, we wanted to confirm everything first! When we found out I was 6 weeks and 5 days along. Our due date was September 9, 2010. Once we left the doctor we called everyone. We wanted to do something clever for everyone... but, we couldn't wait! I will never forget that feeling. The feeling of a little being growing inside your body. It is truly amazing. I remember after I found out... taking a moment to breath and thank God for the little blessing he gave us. I remember praying and thanking God for the opportunity to become a mother. The most overwhelming feeling of pure joy. It was one of the happiest moments in my life... until he arrived! Nothing better than the day I became a mother.


And now...
September 1, 2010 at 7:57pm arrived Jake Bowman Stone.
Our little 7 lb, 1 oz and 19.5 inch boozy.

He has quickly grown! Considering he's now in the 90% percentile in weight, and 95% percentile in length!

Have a good week everyone!
