Happy Birthday!

Can you believe it....this exact time last year we were doing this:

And this:

But it wasn't all smiles all the time. I was also feeling like this:

That was about the time my epidural started to wear off and I got some more happy drugs!

But pretty soon, the doctors decided it was time and out came Stephen Charles into the big world!! Stephen was born at 6:58 pm, weighing in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces and 19.5 inches long. And most importantly, he was able to use his little lungs.

What a year it's been!?!?

More pictures of the birthday boy to come later!!


  1. Happpy Birthday Stephen!!!
    We are so happy you came into this world to share your life with all of us. You are so loved by so many--having taught us all huge lessons about faith, determination, and the power of prayer. You are one amazing Superman and we are sure God has a special plan for you. Sending lots of love and hugs your way on Big Birthday #1!!

  2. These pictures brought tears of happiness to my eyes. I especially love the one where Bill is touching his hand and the last one with you. You should be very proud, you have all come such a long way this year. Here's to an even better 2012. Happy birthday Stephen!
