12

12 years ago today I became a mother for the very first time.
After quickly labouring to the pushing stage, my baby decided to stay put.
In fact, he decided to chill out in my uterus until I was so exhausted that I could not push him out.
I am pretty sure he would've been quite content to stay inside until he was a few years old, but, the doc wasn't into it and pulled out the vacuum.

Have you ever tried to push a baby out with a vacuum on his head and your tiny, female doctor pulling so hard, her leg was against the bed?
Fun times, I tell ya.

Eventually, my almost 9 pound baby entered this world unwillingly and I loved him instantly.
He cried....
....and cried....
....and cried...
for hours.

He cried so long that I wanted to put him back inside.
He cried so much that the nurses eventually took him from me because he was disrupting the entire floor.
By that point I was OK with it, and actually thought about making a quick escape back home.

But I didn't.
Because I was so completely in love with my new baby boy.
And I still am.
And always will be.

Happy birthday to my peanut butter addicted, horse loving, messy, sometimes lazy, extremely handsome, growing up too fast big boy.

Love the picture collage! Happy Birthday to him and "Birth" Day to you! You probably just had a very comfortable and well-stocked uterus!

Vikki, Such an adorable tribute to a handsome young man with a birthday. Tell him I said happy birthday. I know, he'll say 'who the heck is that?' but that's okay. I wish him a happy one.
