Happy Birthday Sweet Boy

I remember I was about 37 weeks along when I woke Daddy up at 3:00 in the morning because I couldn't breathe with the contractions any longer. We went down to the hospital and they almost sent me home. They gave me one hour to walk around. I made great progress and they admitted me. You were born later that afternoon at 6 lbs 11 oz.

We took guesses with the family on when you would be born, your weight and height. I guessed exactly right on the day. Grandma was closest on your height and weight. You were born exactly 2 years and 11 months after your brother!!

When we first brought Josh in to meet you, he wasn't sure what was happening. He had picked out a special bear for you several weeks before you were born. He brought it in dropped it down into the warming bed and you grabbed it. He was so excited that you liked his gift. It was so sweet!!

Well Seth, you have come into our home
and started a whirlwind. You are very curious, silly and funny. I never knew one child could get into so much stuff! I have found you in the dishwasher, bathroom cabinets, the refrigerator, toilet, closets and under beds. You have taken your diaper off and pooped on the kitchen floor. You've dumped the whole shredder basket on the office floor. I think it's like Daddy always says "you don't go looking for messes, the messes find you!" I love that you're curious and love to explore!!

It'
s been fun to see you do all of the firsts. I thought you were never going to start talking and now you don't stop. Your newest phrase cracks me up "No Pal!" I also love to hear you call your brother "Joshua" or "Joshie."

I can't believe you're already 2! It's going to be quite the adventure with you but we're all excited to take the ride and see what God has in store!! We love you Seth!!About 24 hours old
