~*Happy Birthday Little Man*~

I was semi awake after my husband returned from the restroom....he had only been home four days from China with our beautiful treasures and it felt wonderful to have a warm bed again after three long weeks apart.

As I lay there in the dark silence, contemplating my new life, I felt this involuntary trickle down yonder. As I bolted for the toilet, I shot back a "I think my water is breaking", to my still jet-lagged gentleman. 

I barely made it to the throne before the gush came. I sat there giggling! My previous pregnancies all had ended in c/section due to my body's inability to start labor or dilate. I thought that my water breaking on its own would mean I might be able to VBAC for once.

After what seemed a very long time, I realized it wasn't slowing down any, and my husband wasn't coming to check on me so I waddled (since at this point in my pregnancy all I could do was waddle) back to our love nest and probably threw a pillow at his sleeping head....jet-lag smet-lag, get outta bed sleepy head!

In the end....after 18 long hours of extremely difficult labor we opted for a c/section, again. Instead of the cervix absorbing the power of those contractions and opening like a flower bud, all my contractions were absorbed by the baby's head and the previous c/section scars.  Poor baby came out all bruised and battered.
Mama trying to sooth a mad boy!

A year later we know this little man inside out. 

He's a lover not a fighter.
He's sweet as pie and twice as nice!
He does things at his own pace, life isn't a race.
Egg, rice and sunflower seed allergies make for an owie tummy, yet, other foods are quite yummy.
