One, Two, FWEEE!

Three years ago, this very night, I looked like this…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy 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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe had a lovely team of nurses, and we listened intently to everything they had to say… see?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe knew this baby was going to be <ahem> on the larger side, so our doctor summed it up well when she pulled him out, held him up like Simba from The Lion King, and declared, “He’s a month old!”

DSCF0345Can you say “Boo-boo lip”?!  

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!
