My pregnancy with his was unconventional. I knew I was pregnant for approximately 15 weeks. Fifteen hard, emotional, life changing weeks. I never fully appreciated how hard it was on me mentally to only have that long to come to terms with it, until I was pregnant with Gremlin. When I got to 17 weeks pregnant with Gremlin, it hit me that that was the amount of time I had been pregnant with Bubba.
|2 weeks pregnant (actually 28 weeks)|
|(14 weeks) 40 weeks pregnant|
My labour was hard, and the morphine I had given to me to help the pain (9 hours before I had him) merely made me black most of it out. It is not a story I tell, simply because I don't remember most of it. He was in special care for a few hours after birth, and I don't remember why.
I love this little boy with all my heart.
Yes, he tests me. Yes, he is as stubborn as a goat. Yes, his temper is most definitely from my side. He is also a sweet, loving, caring and chatty little boy who feels no fear amongst strangers.
When he smiles, the world smiles with him.
My beautiful baby boy is not really a baby any more. Before my eyes, he is turning into an incredible boy, and I'm not sure I can take even a little of the credit!
Happy Birthday Bubba, may your wishes and dreams all come true (except the one where it snows today and Santa comes)
p.s Please take the time today to remember those lost in World War 1 & 2. Our lives would be very very different if not for the brave men and boys who went to fight.
