Although I am still really behind in uploading all the great pics and videos from Christmas in Bismarck, I had to write a quick post about our baby boy, who turned 1 today!!!!! (Hopefully he naps long enough for me to finish it.)
It definitely seems like a long time ago that we gave birth, but the memories are still very fresh in our minds (they are especially fresh in Ross' mind, hehe). From about 8:15 p.m. onward the evening of January 7th, 2009, I was in the most pain I've ever felt, and Ross, my darling and unbelievably supportive husband, was feeling at his most helpless. But at 4:31 in the morning on January 8th, John Ross Schuchard finally arrived (exactly two weeks early), and it was the most transcendent and blissful moment either of us has ever experienced. John was beautiful, but much more importantly, he was healthy.
We are so blessed to have such an amazing son in you, John, and our lives are INFINITELY more meaningful now that you are here. You are such an adorable and lovable little boy! It still melts our hearts every time you smile or laugh (which you already know by now because we try way too hard to get you to do it). Happy 1st Birthday, John. We love you SO MUCH!
