Michael’s 1st Birthday – Part 2 – Video!

Sorry it took us so long to get video uploaded, but Meg and I had quite a bit of video to look through and edit down into a manageable size.

Be forewarned, this video is over 15 minutes long, we had a lot of good footage that we wanted to share with everyone.

Anyway, enjoy:

As always, you can view all of the videos we’ve uploaded to the site on the videos tab of the website.

This time last year….

Happy First Birthday Michael Donovan Shannon!


This time last year…

I won’t go into all the details but Tim and I were 3 hours from meeting Michael for the first time. It is crazy to think a year ago today Tim and I drove to the hospital knowing that we wouldn’t be coming home until we had a baby! With Michael we didn’t know if we were having a boy or girl. It was the most exciting/scary day of our lives. Tim was so nervous he couldn’t eat (and that never happens with a Shannon Boy!) I was in such a sate of nervous shock, I was walking around like a zombie. Some how we, and I say we because I would have never been able to do it with out Tim, made it through the labor and were greeted with a healthy screaming baby boy. Like everyone said we fell in love with Michael from the second we saw him. And I must add, he was by far the most handsome little boy ever.

I can’t believe we are going to do it all again in just 15 short weeks. It meant so much to have my family there waiting just down the hall. I think they were almost as nervous as we were. It was also a great surprise that all the Shannons made it down that night to meet our little man. We are so blessed that we get to have this next baby in Bismarck so the family can meet him with out having to drive across multiple states!
We are planning on celebrating by taking Michael out for a cheeseburger (his favorite food) and maybe even letting him try cake again, just not with all that blue frosting!!!

Thank you to everyone for being so supportive this first year. All the advice and help have been invaluable.

Happy First Birthday Michael Donovan Shannon!

Michael’s 1st Birthday – Part 1 – Pictures!

We just got back from celebrating Michael’s first birthday, and wow what a weekend. Meg and I are exhausted, not to mention Michael. I could summarize the entirety of the events in the past weekend, but I think the hundreds (literally) of pictures we took can speak for themselves.

Keep in mind we only uploaded about half of those we took. Enjoy the rest of them here!
