That little heartbeat....

If you follow me on twitter or facebook you saw my status on Wednesday:

It was one year ago Wednesday that a little stick told us our lives would never be the same (for the better of course!)  But it was one year ago today that we heard a little heart beat and saw this for the first time (and confirming that we were 6 weeks, 5 days pregnant!):



So on this day I want you to know my son, Jude Robert, the first moment I heard your heartbeat I was overcome by love for you.  You are everything I could ever imagine and more.  As much joy as you brought us with that first little sound of your heartbeat, you have brought us tenfold since you've entered into this world.  You are perfect in every way and we are so in love with you our Little Hoot! :)

"For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and
wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; 
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of
the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, 
every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them."
Psalm 139:13-16, ESV
