Flashback Friday (part 39) - The Day I Became A Mom

November 20, 2009

Celebrating Troy's third birthday this week had me naturally reminiscing about the day he was born and I became a mom. I look back at the pictures and it's really hard to believe that he's three.

I'm not going to bore entertain you with the story of my pregnancy or labor but I will say this, I had a very happy pregnancy til I hit full term at 40 weeks. It wasn't until I was a day shy of 42 weeks that Troy was finally born and that was after being induced, in labor for 38+ hours and they finally pulled him out by his big noggin'.

I couldn't have been more happy.

However, we were both exhausted.

I still can't get enough of looking at his face. I wanted a healthy baby with blue eyes, curly hair, freckles and a dimple like his Dad and I got it.

It was a great day to finally meet him.

Now it's your turn.

Beautiful pictures! I can't imagine waiting nearly 42 weeks for the show to start, but I can so relate to having ridiculously long labors - my first was born after 30 hours, and my second after 60. Leave it to a baby to be fashionably late. ;)

My baby will be 7 in December. It goes by way too fast, doesn't it?
