Five years ago...

*God surprised me with a brand new, red-headed, warrior-spirited, gentle-hearted son.

*God blessed me with wonderful home birth. It was a beautiful autumn day, and I was surrounded by my favorite people in my home. It was perfect.

*I became a mom of three sons! Three!!! I felt like I'd just won the jackpot on a slot machine! Three sons in a row!

Today, he left babyhood behind forever. Five.

Here are some pictures of his journey so far:

Labor day. I got to meet Seth face to face about two hours after this pictures was taken.



First snuggles with daddy.



Here I'm getting my first real good look at him. I'm in love.



Caleb and Gabe meet their new brother just moments after he was born.



Three days old.


A week old. This is my view of him in my sling, where he spent about the entire first year of his life!



My little pumpkin.



One month old. I caught a cute little sleepy smile.



Two months old. A gift from above.




First Christmas with three boys!




One year old today!




Two!






Almost three.




I'm four years old!




And today:



His wish before he blew out his candles: "I wish to be a worker when I grow up."



Today is all about him.




Happy birthday, big guy. I'll never, ever, ever, ever, EVER stop loving you. (These sweet words Seth exclaims to me almost every day.) Sigh. I'm the most blessed momma ever.
