Happy 4th Birthday P!

We had been told that his due date was either July 17th or July 21st. So, I was a tad bit upset when he still wasn't here on July 25th. Actually, on the 24th, I had a major meltdown in the OB/GYN office. It wasn't very pretty. Finally, on the morning of the 26th, I started to have some contractions. They were fairly consistent but not close together. Finally after several hours we called the hospital and decided to come and get checked. I think when my doctor heard I was there and contracting, he decided to have them keep me. I was grateful. I wanted him OUT! They broke my water and started the Pitocin but things didn't progress they way the doctor wanted it to. We ended up opting for a c-section and P was born at 10:09 PM on Wednesday, July 26, 2006. Much to my excitement, I finally got to meet this little one and hold him in my arms!

So tiny and precious!

That burping picture is priceless! I'm in love with how it perfectly catches the complete wonder of a newborn.
