Tell All Tuesday: One Year Ago

 Happy Birthday To My Sweet Baby
Thinking back on that very busy morning that our baby was born:

I woke up at 5:15 to contractions that were very strong and (me)-- not moving at all but tightly holding onto the side of the bed I breathed deeply. As I did Gus woke up and asked, "are you ok?" and then I replied, "I think I need to get ready."
How did I sleep through those contractions, man..... they hurt.
Then as I hurried to get ready and we dropped Ethan off at the Grandparents house my contractions got stronger and stronger.
On the way to the hospital I remember telling Gus, "stop hitting all the bumps in the road"...I laugh at that because he was trying so hard to not hit them!!

Then as we arrive to the hospital I walk down 2 flights of stairs so I can just GET to the delivery room. I thought if I walked I would get there faster but what was I thinking???
Maybe next time I will use a wheelchair...or not...

So I get to the room and I was 8 cm dilated.

And less then 45 minutes later I was holding my blue eyed baby boy in my arms.
A start to a new beginning with 2 children.

It has been wonderful but this year has gone by so fast?

Oh how the time flies!
I think with each child the first year goes by faster and faster.
As I am sitting in my chair writing this I remember telling a few people at church this past weekend that this week Tucker was going to be 1. They all said, "If I would have known how fast time flies and how precious it is to have all your children living at home with you then I would have had a slue of them."

I am just so thankful that Tucker is a healthy and active little boy. Although him being active keeps me busy....Very Busy.
I wouldn't want it any other way.

Today he is
17 pounds
 27 inches
He has grown some in the past two weeks, which is good.

But he is still a little guy for his age.

So today I am content, happy, thankful, and blessed to be a mommy.

Happy Birthday Tucker Samuel Evans
