Three years ago, this very night, I looked like this…
My parents and mother-in-law were in town, and we celebrated Christmas a few days early. My dad did an amazing job entertaining Ryder while we checked in to the hospital bright and early the next morning.
Evan Jackson Barr was born around 8:40am on December 22, 2010 weighing a whopping 9lb. 14oz. (and he was a week early!). We brought him home from the hospital on Christmas Eve, through lightly falling snow – one of my most precious Christmas memories of all time. God blessed this boy with a compassionate older brother who (thankfully) never once asked us to take him back 🙂
In last year’s birthday Facebook post, I described Evan as snuggly, smart, mischievous, high-climbing, and fiercely loved. Today, he’s all those things and more, and we couldn’t feel more blessed to call him ours. Happy third birthday (tomorrow), Evie J!
