Because the main idea of this blog is to document the strange and hilarious things my boys do, and because I think they are so darn cute, I thought it would be appropriate to officially introduce them to you. So, here's the line-up:
Meet Seth. He is 11 months old at the moment and will be celebrating his first birthday in a few short weeks. He has an uncanny resemblance to his bigger brother, Noah, and his personality, thus far, sure is a lot like Noah, as well. Seth was a surprise for us from the moment we found out I was pregnant to the moment he was born. Unlike the previous pregnancies, we decided to wait until his birth to find out the gender of this surprise child I was carrying. My sweet husband was convinced this was our girl. I, however, was in limbo the entire time. I had no idea, much to my frustration, what was inside my belly. And then, after 9 brutal months of wondering and waiting, he arrived. My awesome OB let my husband be the first to see the baby's anatomy and then announce it to me. I will never forget my husband as he said "It's a...a boy? What?" I love that he phrased it in question form when he announced it to me, as if there may be some dispute about it. And as I recall I laid there and said "of course it's a boy" as if I'd known the entire time. Of course, I had no idea, but still it was as if it settled on me in that instant that this was my life. A life destined for camping trips, baseball games, and blue jeans. Or maybe that was just the morphine talking. I can't be sure. But Seth, our sweet little Seth, has been the perfect surprise for us. He is what made us the Friesen Five, after all.
