Someone else is having a birthday!




Today (Jan. 8th) my oldest turns 7 years old! It seems like just yesterday we were on our way to the hospital so that I could be induced. I was in labor all day but I had drugs so I slept most of the time. Then around 3:30 in the afternoon,my doctor became concerned about the baby's heartbeat and strongly suggested I have a C-section. Considering how long I had waited for this little baby (I had 4 miscarriages before Josh was born) I had a strong feeling that he needed to get out. I was wheeled into the O/R and at 4:00pm I heard the sweet sound of my baby crying. Then I was crying and I felt so relieved that he was alright. Later on I found out that the placenta was tearing away from my uterus and he could have drowned in blood,not to mention I could have died as well. I'm grateful every day for this sweet boy.

Happy birthday Joshie,I love you!
