I thought about writing a “Dear Abe” post to end all “Dear Abe” posts on this, his first birthday. But one year ago today at nearly this exact moment, this was my status on Facebook:
Erin Salem Cohen: 7lbs 5oz, 20inches, and the longest, most painful 2 days of my life resulted in this incredible little soul laying on my chest named Abraham. He is perfect. Pictures to come.
Pictures to come is right. And pictures seem to speak louder than words for this milestone anyway. So I threw a little something together to somehow try and express my joy in having a one year old Abraham, and also in having survived a one year old Abraham. Enjoy.
