I Remember it Like it was Yesterday

Last year, this very same day, Bob and I found out we had a little one on the way. We (Bob) didn't believe the test at first. I think his exact words were, "you KNOW you gotta go get another one." So I did. It was early so our nearby Walgreens wasn't even open yet. I don't remember where I ended up, probably trusty old Walmart. Either way, the 2nd test was, obviously, also positive. I pretty much floated through the rest of the day...it was wonderful.

It's funny b/c I had a feeling for a few weeks before that I was pregnant but I didn't want to get my hopes up. So it was still sort of a surprise when we saw the positive on the test. I had one of those huge, my face can't contain it, smiles as I handed the test to Bob. Either I couldn't find any words or I didn't feel like anything I would say could do justice to the excitement I was feeling.

Ok, enough of all that. Here's the very first picture we have of Sam. Isn't life a miracle? It still blows my mind that a little person came from that tiny "bubble".

Thank you Lord for the blessing of our son!
