one year ago

One year ago today I knew it was the day.

One year ago today your dad and I went to the hospital.

And he put on this:


And we were ready.


One year ago today you entered this world, and forever took your place in our hearts.


One year ago today you surprised us not with your full head of hair but by how red it was.


One year ago today we got a glimpse of how loud your wails were going to turn out to be.

One year ago today Grammy and your sisters came to meet you.  Hannah might eventually ask when you were going back, but today she was entranced.



One year ago today, you were born.
