Bunny: It's A Boy!!!

Over a month ago now, just before dawn, we met our bunny at last.

Jack Michael Stevenson was born on Sunday, March 10 at 5:41 in the morning. He was 7 pounds, 4 ounces, and 20 3/4 inches -- long and lean. He was screaming and squawking right away. When they held him up and Kyle said "It's a boy!" -- that right there was the best and biggest moment of my life. It probably always will be. It was pure magic.

Birth is the sudden opening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.
William Macneile Dixon

It's high time I shared how this first month has gone. It's been so many things: exciting and exhausting, funny and frustrating. We are both so in love with this little guy -- it's amazing to see his personality emerging. I'm already (obnoxiously) convinced that he's exceptional ;)

But -- such is life with a wee one -- I have to divide up this story over several posts, because I just don't have the stretches of time now to write out one big whopper.

We'll go week by week over four posts. They're coming soon. But for now, I have some big blue eyes to attend to. Happy Friday!!!
