One year ago

This week, I was 39 weeks pregnant and waiting to finally meet my son after so many months.
11/13/09 - I still had nearly a month?!
My due date was 11/28 - the Saturday after Thanksgiving -  but I was so hopeful that he would be out sooner.

12/4/09 - induced the following day

Of course, he had no desire to come out on his own.  My little man was born on December 6 - 41 weeks and 1 day, thanks to the evil, yet necessary, drug known as Petocin.

And this past Saturday, with the help of my husband's family, we celebrated my son's 1st birthday.  We exchanged gifts, sang Happy Birthday, than brought him a cupcake with a large "#1" candle on top.
Excuse my hair!
For a few minutes, he sat there looking at this weird piece of food cautiously.  He started carefully with his fingers, than began playing a bit more.  I tried putting a little on my finger for him to taste, but he showed no interest.


And then, he realized that it was delicious.
Only a 1 year old can pull of this look
Isn't he cute?

A very Happy *Almost* Birthday to my wonderful baby, Noah!
