All in One Year

One year ago today, I was 10 days post-due, labor began, I was in denial over it, and running all over Wasilla for various appointments. Today, my toddler baby is thrilling our hearts as he pitter-patters throughout our home. His babbles and giggles bring us unfathomable joy...and we are even more in love with this baby! This week he began to walk more than crawl...and our days of being a nursing couplet are coming to a close. All this in one year. My mommy-heart is so full...of memories...of hopes...and my tears fall freely. As is the case when one's heart is so incapable of expressing feelings in words, things are best expressed with music. And so, I share our little Keiki's first birthday gift with you...a walk through his first year set to his birth music. Settle in and enjoy; it is lengthy--be sure to watch through the entire three songs!

Very sweet, Jess! About halfway through the video, the picture of him wrapped up in a blanket in a stroller...that's an exact copy of Ethan's special blankie! Of course, his is much more worn after 11 years of love. :) Happy Birthday to your little man!

Thanks Tony for sharing this with me. The video is amazing Jessica!! I remember when I just found out I was pregnant and you came up to the midwifery to share Alek's birth story. And now Alek is 1 year old!!

Awesome and amazing. I bet it took forever to put that together!! BTW, you've blogged more this year than I have. I need to get back to it. I need to keep track of all these precious memories.

My sweet quiet snuggly little friend. His sense of humor brings a smile to my face every Sunday and his snuggles warm my heart!
