at this time last year

Whenever I think back to those last few days before I had Theodore, I remember this day a year ago. I was 5 days overdue with my baby bundle. We were so excited and anxious to meet our little one. When I woke up that morning and grudgingly realized another night had passed without the "Honey, it's time" I was so bummed. I desperately wanted to get things moving so we hit the lakes for a long walk. And LONG it turned out to be! We intended to walk only Cedar, but after that was finished and I still felt annoyingly great, we continued on to tackle Harriet and Isles as well. All in all I think I walked about 10 miles that morning, at 5 days past due with a 9.3 lb baby in my belly!

That evening we went to Diane and David's for a little family dinner in celebration of Judy and Darrel's 30th Wedding Anniversary and Aimee's 20th birthday. It was a wonderful night filled with family, laughter, and lots of excitement over the baby to come....

Here is a tiny clip of the birthday girl that day. I apologize for the video quality, I'm not sure why it is playing back so poorly.

Happiest of Birthdays to our dear Aimee Kathrine. Wishing you the sun, moon, and stars on your 21st.


  1. can we just talk about how lame my voice is? i should hire someone to read my voicemail message.
    i love that dress though. wearing another BR one out in minneapolis tomorrow! :)

  2. i think everyone hates their own voice when they hear it on a recording....i know i'm always disgusted when i hear my cell phone messages to ryan.
