Our son is 1!  ONE!  It really is crazy to watch children develop right before your eyes.  From a snuggly newborn to a little being with a personality and a grin unlike anything I have ever seen, a stare that is a little bit unnerving, blue eyes that rival the Alberta skies, and a laugh that clears away all the clouds.

This year has been tremendously joyful and tremendously tiring.  There were moments where I thought I couldn't dig any deeper and other moments that spilled open and watered a garden that I didn't even know was dry.  Jude, you are loved, you are loved, you are loved.  Happy Birthday!
