It's been three years since this happened.

Everyone says it goes by so fast, and everyone is right. Granted, we have been awake for most of it.

Happy birthday to our babywhumpus. It was a terrifying day, and there is still a tinge of that terror attached to the 29th of May, though tempered with the knowledge that he is blooming, lovely, difficult, and three.

The rest of the story is here, here, and here.

It's time for shameless solicitation. Finn is turning three in a few days, and we have signed up to be in a 3K that benefits the NICUs in the hospital where Finn was nurtured. We would not have our boy if it were not for them. Since we don't need any more crap in our house, of any kind (still not potty trained), we signed up to raise money for our team, babywhumpus. Original name, I know. It's all about branding, people. Pete and I, Finn, and two of Finn's grandparents (Hi, Grandpa and Oma) are participating in this arduous race to the finish, and instead of birthday presents, we're asking for donations.

We will post embarrassing video of the race as a reward, if necessary.

Safe for work, of course.

May 1, 2011. Snow.

Yes, these photos are from yesterday.
There were snowflakes.
Today, too.

I have no more words.
