One year and one and a half days ago, we looked like this:

Not quite five hours later, we looked like this:

About seven and a half hours later (Baby Boy’s maybe three hours old here), he and his big sister met:

And he was small and beautiful and perfect:

Now he’s one year old

and we’re so excited to know him, to have spent this year together, to have learned more about this sweet-tempered, inquisitive boy.

We couldn’t love you more, Baby Boy, and we look forward to all that the next year – and the year after that, and the year after that, and…well, you get the picture, right? – will bring.
