Believe it or not, Lil' E is one-year-old today!
I can't believe how fast the year went by. It seems like just yesterday, J and I were driving to the hospital to have him. I was SOOOOO nervous and SOOOOO excited at the same time. I knew exactly how it would go this time around .... c-section. But knowing exactly what would happen still made me very nervous. Anyway, on July 2, 2009 at 7:21 AM E was born. It was so joyous because he cried and I could hear him. (P didn't cry and it scared me because I thought something was wrong. He was fine, he just didn't cry.) Hearing that sweet, LOUD cry made me well up with tears. It was so fun to see him pee on the nurse as they did their little tests. So very quickly, they rushed him and J off to the nursery while I had to be stitched up and go to recovery. It is so hard to be separated like that but I know it must be done. After what seemed like an eternity, they brought me back to my room where I was reunited with J and E. Later in the day, my mom brought P to meet his brother.
I CANNOT believe that a year has passed already! It amazes me how much they grow and progress in such a short amount of time! I'll post his well-child check stats after we go to the doctor.
Yesterday, we celebrated with J's parents at Golden Corral. I was so prepared! I brought the camera and whipped it out to take a ton of pictures. Unfortunately, the battery died the second I turned it on. AARGH!! Luckily, I had my cell phone and got some photos. (They are terribly quality but you get the idea.)

Here is the cake that J's mom brought. It was yummy!
Here is the treat that our sweet waitress gave to E. He wasn't quite sure what to do and never really dove into it.
(Whenever we go to Golden Corral, we always sit in this one ladies section. She has always been so kind and loving to our boys. I'm glad there are such wonderful and nice people in the world!)

Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY E!!!!! We love you so much and are so grateful to have you in our family. You are such a blessing and joy!
