It's the eve of his first birthday.

It's the eve of his first birthday and I can't help but reminisce. Tomorrow, our sweet baby Austin turns a year old. At 6.48pm on Tuesday March 11th, 2014 a chubby little bubba weighing 8lbs 9oz entered our lives and made it that much sweeter. Overdue, with rising blood pressure & protein levels, I was induced on the 10th, but then it was almost 24 hours before he finally entered this world. The hardest, most intense and exhausting hours of my life but also the most rewarding. After all the complications of my first labor with Oliver, a drug free birth was my goal this time around and with the support of my Mitch and our wonderful doula Michelle, that goal was achieved. I remember being on such a high for days, weeks even after his birth. I felt like superwoman. In fact, I still do when I think back on that day.

You think time flies with your first, but it goes even faster with your second. The days can be long but the years truly are short, and what a year it's been. We love you, our sweet baby Austin. You're an absolute delight and such a perfect addition to our little family :-)
