happy birthday owen!!!

i am sitting here.. at the exact time one year ago when i was in route to American Fork Hospital... to deliver our sweet little Owen.
it was the best day of my life. infact... i was so sad to leave the hospital, in fear of forgetting this magical experience. i didn't want it to end... and it was only the beginning.
the night Owen was born was perfect. 3 hours of labor. fabulous doctor and nurses. great support and love from Jon.  the room was calm... he barely whimpered when he came.  he just looked up at me...and then i held him on my chest. we knew his spirit... he is so sweet.
AND he came on his due date! he was just trying to be on time :)
our lives have been so blessed to have such a happy, fun, amazing.. little boy. as i am sure all parents feel.  
owen... we love you. it is crazy how much love you can feel for someone. we are so happy... and so lucky...

Yay for Owen! What a big boy his is in his little overalls :) I wish him and Wyatt could play and be bffs.
