My little man turned ONE…it seems like yesterday I was saying, “hey I am half-way there!” <– at 20 weeks! Little did I know I was going to have feet the size of watermelons and be put on “bedrest” for this fella. Boy, he was certainly worth it. All 8.2 lbs of him on April 14th at 5:16pm. I really tried hard to have him at 4:14pm. I was pulling weeds in the front yard the Sunday before I went to the hospital (that night I was going to be induced). I had to make sure the yard didnt have weeds in it. I knew we were going to have a lot of folks over and I wanted it to be presentable. Off to Cheesecake Factory we went for my final dinner and then to the hospital. The waitor’s face was priceless when we told him we needed the check because we were on the way to the hospital to have a baby. At 8am they came in to start the IV’s and get my labor going and 9 hours later, Sammy Jay was here!
So we celebrated his big ONE with Elmo and the gang. He (and a lot of other kids I know) love Elmo. I really love the whole entire Mommy experience, I just wish it wasnt going so fast. Happy Birthday Sam…Mommy and Daddy love you!
