Labor of Love

Eddie was born one year ago right this minute!

I had noticeable contractions for 41 hours, my water broke 54 hours before birth, and I had to push for over 6 hours to get him out. And it was so, so worth it.

I really, really, really cannot believe Eddie is our child and that he came from my body. This past year has been so wonderful, bewildering, fun, and only sometimes difficult. Even though I'm a single working mama 57% of the time, it has always been a joy to take care of my sweet boy.

When I'm at our home computer later I'll post some pictures of him throughout the past year. But for now, here's a picture of the birth announcement cards we mailed out:

I love you soooooooooooooooo much my sweet Edawadawordaweirdawhatawalkamus! (That nickname requires a whole post of its own...)
