One year ago, our lives were changed forever. Our family of 2+dog became 3+dog when our first born, Indio, entered our lives.
He was scheduled to be born on December 22, but decided that he wanted to make his entrance exactly a week earlier. Of course, my hospital bag wasn't ready! Luckily, E was able to pack the necessities [laptop and camera were all I really *needed*] into a duffle bag while I hobbled around our apartment looking for everything else I said I should put into the bag weeks ago!
At 8:07am on Monday, December 15, 2008, we began a journey so rewarding, an adventure so exciting, a love so indescribable...and all so unique to us. Don't get me wrong, the last year hasn't been all peaches and cream. There were definitely moments where it was harder than I ever imagined possible. But as cliché as this sounds, it really was all worth it.
It's scary to think that an entire trip around the sun has already passed and that our little boy is almost walking, talking, and becoming more and more his own little person. I really don't know where the time has gone, and though I'm so excited for what the future has in store for us, I'm a bit sad that everything is moving so quickly. We'll always have the memories, right? [And the thousands of photos I've taken!]
Happy 1st Birthday, Indio! We love you!
