Happy Birthday Mattie!

At this time (8:30 am) last year I was in the shower getting ready to go to my doctor so he could break my water. By noon I was at the hospital. At 11:06 pm Matilyn Lee entered the world! For me, the hospital was the best part! I was so excited to finally meet our little girl (and to not be pregnant).

Since Mattie's party is on Saturday, today will be low-key and with just the family. We will probably go to the restaurant that has her favorite tortellini for lunch and go birthday shopping with our good friend Jennica. It should be a really nice day!


“Birth is the sudden opening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.”

“The greatest work of art created first by god and then by man, is the creation of life. The whole process is an amazing art in itself. The fact that it takes two artists, man and woman, each bringing their own parts of a pallet to create a work of art that not only has a piece of both artists but is also a living, breathing, ever-changing, piece of art with an identity of it’s own.”

"We can do no great things; only small things with great love." ~Mother Theresa
