Happy Almost Birthday, Shaun!

Five years ago today, I was thoroughly convinced that Shaun would make his appearance into this world. After a few months of preterm labor, it was finally the real deal...and we were ready!

But Shaun had other plans and was in no hurry to come out and meet us! After being sent home for the third and final time for the night (with medicine to help me sleep...yeah right!), I had given up my idea of having an August 3rd birthday as I'd predicted early on (because my birthday is August 23, 1987 and the hubby's is November 27, 1983...it was only fitting our child be born on August 3, 2007...keeping with the 3 and 7 pattern.)

The next morning, we headed back to the hospital once again, and were finally admitted! (At this point, I was not going to take no for an answer anyway!) After a looooong, hard labor (aren't you supposed to get some sort of labor amnesia...I did not!! Ha!)...Shaun finally made his appearance late that night, August 4, 2007!! And for the past 5 years, he has been the biggest blessing in my life. I could not be more proud to have him call me Mommy!!

Happy Early Birthday, Shauny!!
