A year ago today, many things happened.
1. Our cats died a little inside.
2. I discovered that chastely pronouncing yourself "not of the body" does not exclude you from being completely and 100% of the body during labor, which is really, really gross.
3. I learned that you can have two men of your dreams at once. (Such men can even cohabitate if you play your cards right, ladies!)
Over the past year, we've seen Bean do so many things for the first time: squirm, roll over, hold his head up, crawl, smile, laugh, recognize his family and friends, say a few simple words, stand up, grow hair, lose hair, grow hair again, discover emotions, give the best hugs, smear cake all over his face like a drunken maniac (above), and turn into a little boy. It's almost impossible to think that we met him just one year ago. He's been here forever, really.
