I had this post in my mind but didn't know exactly what to say...I had played around with it for a while.
I cannot believe my first born is 4! Where did the time go? He is a challenge and such a reward! He can make me lose my mind and then melt my heart all in a matter of minutes. I am so glad that we decided not to send him to Pre-K this year and give me an extra year to do stuff with him. He will start going to a real Sunday school this Sunday and I cannot wait to find out what will come out of his mouth after that!
I remember when we found out that I was pregnant. We are apparently not good planners, or God knows better that we do! I think it is the latter! I was sad at first, for maybe 2 minutes, then so excited. We went ahead and told everyone! I knew like 3 days after missing my cycle that something was up. Then went to the doctor to confirm. I think my first sonogram was when we found out we were having a boy. My mom went with us. Andrew was so happy. I didn't care as long as we had a healthy baby. Then we got started on the room. We live in a 2 bedroom condo, so we had to do away with our office and make a nursery. My mom and Andrew painted the room and we had a shelf that goes all around the room put in by some people at church. I loved the room, and still do!
The day came and the doctor decided to induce with us knowing that a c-section may come because I had some hypertension with Noah. And he was BIG! So we went to the hospital early that morning on June 10, 2004. I had an epidural I believe around lunch time...but ever got any further that 6 cent. So the doctor around 5:30 decided to do a C-section. He was born at 6:14 pm weighing in a 9 lbs 3.5 oz. I cried like a baby the first time I saw him. I couldn't believe that little miracle was mine!
So here we are 4 years later...a lot has happened since then! We gave Noah a brother almost 3 years later, which I don't think he appreciates just yet! I love my boys and I'm so glad to have the opportunity to stay at home and raise them. I know I'm made mistakes with Noah, he is the first after all. But I hope that one day he will forgive me! I love him so much and wish him a happy birthday!
