Seven years ago, Ro and I couldn't wait until this little bundle of joy would arrive. The night before he was born, we were up the entire night too excited to sleep and filled with a million emotions. We arrived at the hospital at 6:00 am ready to be induced.....both of us thinking that by noon we would have a baby in our arms. Well, noon came....and noon went. Induction is such a long process....of which I am extremely thankful for epidurals....made the process a breeze. By 6:00 pm there was still no baby, no contractions....nothing....but I was starving!!!!!! Finally, about 10 pm things started happening and this bundle of joy arrived at exactly 1:00 am. I couldn't take my eyes or my hands off of him....he was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. For the second night in a row, I stayed up all night and just took him all in. So thankful that he was healthy and absolutely perfect!
We had a small party to celebrate his big day. He wanted to wear his shirt with the ruby buttons...and if you look close...you may be able to see those little gems.We broke protocol and let him open presents first.
Dew, I hope you had a wonderful birthday and wish you have a year full of many blessings.
