It was a year ago this week that we found out we were expecting a baby, something which caught us totally by surprise. Just when we’d gotten into an “oh well, that’s never gonna happen, I guess we can just do our own thing” groove, the universe decided to throw us a curve ball.
I remember saying, about a year ago today, how happy the news made me, but I don’t think even then that I could’ve imagined how happy the little guy would make me on a day to day basis. There’s just something about a little guy who always breaks into a big grin when he sees you first thing in the morning that brightens my day. No matter how icky I feel or how tired I am (which surely you can’t tell from these pictures), it’s always a good day with Evan around.
The boy just makes my life better. I hope I do the same for him.
A good friend of mine who shall remain nameless discovered that he and his wife are expecting, and all I could think of was to get ready for happiness like you’ve never known it. I realize this is all very easy for me to say when I’m not yet at the point where I’m following Evan as he races around the house looking for new and more dangerous things to put into his mouth or climb onto, but if I thought I was happy last year…man, I really didn’t know anything yet.
