The doctors tried pushing for a c-section to be scheduled May 28th.... We decided to wait a bit longer.Thankfully we didn't have to wait much longer...5 days later...June 2nd.... my water broke. I went into labor and in just 6 hours and 30 minutes of pushing AND with no pain meds. I gave birth to my very first child. A sweet boy...I was going to say little boy. But he was bigger than we anticipated. At 9 pounds 11 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long, it was like we were holding a three month old baby. He became the center and joy of our lives. I promised myself I wouldn't blink.
And before we knew it, our boy became a man. Today he turns 18. We have enjoyed watching him grow up into the wonderful person the Lord has made him to be...Sometimes I secretly wish I could just turn back time for a bit, to hold him in my arms, listening to his little coos, holding his tiny fingers. I miss dressing him up in those little boy outfits and watching him take his first steps. These things will forever be in my memories...Memories I will forever hold dearly and close to my heart. Today we will enjoy watching him, enjoying his day, celebrating his birthday.
Happy Birthday to you my sweet son.
Forever I will love you, We are blessed that God chose you to be our boy.
And though you may be a man today, you will forever be my baby.
