One year .

 

A year ago….

This was us.

(oy!)

Ready to meet our son. Ready to see the baby we had waited for. Ready to hold him. Ready… very ready.

A year ago…

We heard him cry for the first time. We saw him top the scales at 10 lbs. 9oz. We saw his dark hair and chubby cheeks. We touched his soft chunky hands and….

fell in love.

A year ago….

This was me. Holding our Micah. Feeling relief. Feeling joy. Feeling overwhelmingly blessed.

A year ago…

Our girls, sweet and lovingly met their brother for the first time.

A year ago…

I had one more being added to …. “The people I love most in all the world” list. And I soaked up the preciousness of each moment.

A year ago…

I thanked my heavenly Father.

A year ago… really? It has already been a year?

And TODAY….

Today our world is brighter. Today our lives are richer.

Today… We celebrate our Micah Jay Nelson. And say “thank you, Lord, for the blessing that is our son.”

Today…

There were doughnuts.  (Initiating Micah into our birthday traditions.)
