As the day has gone by, I find myself savoring again each moment from a year ago:
5am: At this time last year, my water broke (Ellie woke up this morning at 4:30 and took an hour to go back to sleep so we were both awake and grumpy for this momentous hour).
8am: This is when I put a towel under my feet and did the dishes
10am: This is when we went to the hospital
11am: This is when we left the hospital
1pm: This is when I realized that I was really having contractions and Jesse called Mom
4pm: This is when we went to the hospital
6:55pm: This is when I met Elena Mae!
8pm: but this is when we chose her name!
Ellie’s monthly to come later…
