As I’m sitting here writing this tonight I’m remembering that exactly 1 year ago to the minute I was running around the house like a madman throwing things in the car while this was going on upstairs. Looking back, in that moment, I could not have imagined that Elijah was less than an hour of away from being born. How we made it to the hospital in time, I’ll never know. By the grace of God only.

And tomorrow Eli will be one year old! We can’t believe how quickly this last year has gone by, and how many changes we’ve seen flash before our eyes. iPhoto says we have 6,953 pictures of Eli that we’ve taken in the last year. I’ll spare you most of those and leave you with these 13; one from his birthday, and one from each month thereafter.

There’s a grand party on the books for this weekend to celebrate Eli’s first year with family and friends. And we’re excited for many more years to come!
