364 Days Ago…

I had been on modified bedrest for 6 weeks for high blood pressure. This morning, a year ago, I went for my 37 week appointment. My blood pressure would not go down so they sent me over to the hospital to be monitored. After spending all day on the monitors my OB decided to induce me. I was terrified since it was still early and I wasn’t even a fingertip dilated but I had no choice.

That next day on August 9th at 3:21 pm I gave birth to the sweetest little boy in the world. He came out screaming and healthy, and that day and the days after have been the best of my life.

Here is a video chronicling his first year, it’s long but worth it. Also please note that most of the photos in the video are just snapshots from our point and shoot.

We did a quick Cake Smash session this morning, he wasn’t sure of the cake at first but ended up loving it and made a bit fun mess.


Hmmm, this is tasty!

And finished…

Happy Birthday to my inspiration, my joy, my love, my life!
