Happy 1st Birthday Carson & Keira!

Every parent says, "I can't believe it's been a year!" Count me as another one of those parents. I don't really feel like time has gone by any faster or slower than usual. There's just been a lot of change.

As Jamie and I were going to bed last night, she noted that it had been a year since we'd gone to bed without kids on the brain.

Actually, a year ago last night we were pretty emotionally drained. We'd spent the whole day in the hospital with Jamie on a pitocin drip, trying to induce labor. She was at 38 weeks, 6 days. The kids needed to come out!

But they were stubborn. I guess they didn't want a February 10th birthday. So we headed home, only to return the next day and start over again. (If you want more of the birth story, check out this post.)

The first thing we did when we left the hospital was head to Jamba Juice. It's been a favorite place of mine since college and Jamie's a big fan now too.


That was two days after they were born. We took them back this afternoon after their one-year checkup to relive the memory (and use a $10 gift card...).

Here's a short video I took with my phone of each of them downing a smoothie.


And here are a few pictures from their time downing the smoothies.

Focused! We're big stuff!

Carson multitasking (drinking a smoothie + giving a classic Carson look)

Keira puckered up after each gulp, then went back for more.

I think every parent has a moment or two (or for some, more) where they long to return to the days of no children. Thankfully, those days really are rare for us. We love being parents to these two! The joy Carson and Keira have been to us is something nothing else can beat.

Happy birthday guys! Stay awesome!

Play time with Dad on birthday night!
