It always makes me a little happy when someones eyes widen and they stumble over their words when I say hello.
A year ago YESTERDAY at 6AM, I showed the early signs of labor, without realizing it. At 6PM my water broke. I finished eating dinner, finished packing my stuff, grabbed a towel, and hopped in the car as my wonderful mother drove me to the hospital. By 7:30PM I was in the hospital bed, enduring severe contractions every minute. (I had back labor too!)
A year ago TODAY! At 2AM I finally broke down and begged for an epidural. (If you had a copy of the waiver, you’d see huge scribbles that were supposed to be my signiture and a line going straight up across it, as I started having a contraction at that moment…) By 3AM I was asleep. At 6AM I was woken up, and told to prepare myself, for in half an hour, I’d be pushing. At 6:30AM I pushed… And pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed…. And made the nurses laugh, as the only time I screamed the entire time was at my son’s father, which was “AND HOW THE HELL DO I LOOK TO YOU NOW?!” in the angriest tone, most bitter, sarcastic tone.
At 7:53 AM, a year ago today…
My beautiful baby boy was born. And it’s been one hell of a ride.
He looks like his father, but has my eyes in a different color.
He has the combined strong will and stubborness of his parents.
A year of snuggles, giggles, hugs, and kisses.
Already running through the house.
Exploring. Growing. Learning. Every day.
Happy first Birthday Atticus Odin.
Momma loves you so much more, every single day.
