1 year later

A year ago we were learning about disappointment, changes in plans, and living with uncertainty.  Today we can't stop staring at our amazing son!

A year ago we were getting to know our Reproductive Endocrinologist and hearing more than I ever wanted to know about infertility.  Today we are calling the Pediatrician to set up Elliot's first appointment, where we will instead hear plenty about feeding, pooping, and sleeping.

A year ago we weren't sure today would even be possible, but here we are!  Today has been a very good day, and maybe even slightly better for the fact that we couldn't see this far a year ago.

God has blessed us enormously.

And really, have you ever seen a child more really really ridiculously good looking?

Congratulations Shelly! Yes, he is definitely really, really, ridiculously good looking. :)

As I read your post, I was listening to Praise to the Lord, the Almighty:

"Hast thou not seen, how all thy longings have been, granted in what He ordaineth."

Thanks for posting!
