Boom. Born.

Newborn babies, the newest of new, the hours old - are magical creatures. When I hold them and feel them breathing in my hands, I can't help but think that yesterday we didn't know who this person is.

Yesterday, Evan was still jammed up and and being squeezed in his mother's belly, preparing himself for the fight of his life, that first fight for freedom. Yesterday he didn't have a name, and we didn't know what color hair he has, and we didn't know that his little toes were going to be the most perfect things in the world for a moment of his birthday. Yes, there was a moment today that was all his.

He went from a person growing in a sea of mystery to a person known. In an instant. Born.
