A year ago

A year ago today, on November 19, 2008, I showed up at my OB's office for what I thought was another opportunity for me to pee on a stick and have them confirm I was pregnant. Instead, because my HcG levels had been low, they...uh...for lack of nicer terminology...sent in the probe (sorry) and we got this picture of our some-day-to-be baby.

Smaller than a grain of rice.

I remember trying to imagine that in a year from then, my semi-grain of rice would be a four-month old baby. Never, did I ever imagine just how amazing, and beautiful, and big, and happy, and coo-y, and all-around lovely he would be.

I love him so much.


  1. How cute is he in that little outfit??!?

  2. Where is that floor mat from? I've never seen one so trendy!

  3. They come from Skip*Hop. You can get them from some stores, but here is the website:

    The biggest draw is that they are one of the few on the market rated for newborn and up. Most of them are 3+ because of the offgassing and chemicals if they chew on a piece.

    I soooo wish the green and tan and brown ones had been available when I was looking...but we like our blue/yellow/brown ones just as much.
