The Number 4

Four Hours Ago: It would have been 5 in the morning Denver time, and I was up with Ezra. He was having some difficulty going to sleep after feeding, so he and I went downstairs and watched some TV. He had fallen asleep 15 or so minutes before 5. 

Four Days Ago: We were enjoying our second day home from the hospital, and celebrating Ahna’s 30th birthday with a brunch at my folk’s house. Dave and Mary Jo were stuck in Minneapolis and trying to get here for the evening – which they did. 

Four Weeks Ago: Two weeks before the due date and sitting with high anticipation of what was to come. That week, I worked a trade shift and we went to our weekly doctor’s appointment for Ezra. We also went to see the Flight of the Conchords in Denver and enjoyed a great and fun night out with friends. 

Four Months Ago: It was Valentine’s Day week and we were happy to be in the middle of winter. I went skiing twice that week, as I continued to learn the telemark style. The baby was still growing it’s skeleton and the bones were beginning to harden. The baby had just developed sleep/awake patterns and was beginning to hear my voice. 

Four Years Ago: Ah, the actual purpose of this post. Ahna and I got married. It was an amazing June day in Colorado, and we had a beautiful ceremony surrounded by our friends and family. It seems like a long trip since then, but it sure has passed quickly. So much has happened, with the best gift just 8 days ago. Wow, four years. 🙂 Thank you to all of our close friends and family who have helped us get to this point with rings on our fingers and bells on our shoes.
