Happy First Birthday Little Lew!

One year ago today we met our little boy for the first time!
My water broke at 5:45 am and contractions started immediately after that. At this time last year Jeff and I were sitting on the couch watching the office, waiting to hear back from my Midwife. My contractions were about 7 minutes apart by this point but not incredibly intense and we were both so excited that the day was finally here! At around 11 contractions were very intense and hard to talk through. So we decided that walking would be a good idea. Ouch.

Feeling like I want to puke
And then many many more contractions later....Tada! Lewis was born


 Our first visitors from Colorado :)

One year later we love him even more then when we first met him

He is goofy and smart and contemplative. Loves to laugh and play and be chased! Its hard to believe he has grown and changed so much in just one short year. He is eating pretty much everything we eat now and loves it. He had pork green chili stew the other night and some chicken tikki masala last night!
