Ordinary Beginnings, Extraordinary Year

He is God's second miracle to me...my daughter was my first. And, despite our history with infertility and the events of the pregnancy with #1, this was a nice, "boring" pregnancy. Luckily, very little morning sickness. No first tri spotting this time. No pregnancy-related health problems. No worrying test results. Correct rates of growth and weight gain. Our OB said he wished he had more patients like us! LOL

Even the delivery was relatively uneventful - as much as being in labor and delivery a baby can be! LOL Two days before my due date, a water-breaking inducement and he arrived five hours later!

But, our world has been entirely changed by our little miracle man! He's been even "easier" than his sister was (they've both been kind to me parenting-wise)! LOL And, today he is 365 days old! Happy birthday to the "other" man in my life...thank God for His wisdom, thanks to Da Hubby for his support and faith, and thanks to my little man for his flattering choice to make me his mom!
