5 years old



Oh lordy, I just can't believe it. Today my little boy is 5 years old, officially. When I look back to 5 years ago today it seems like a flash. I remember the details of his birth so vividly.

Highlights included

*A long drive from our tiny town to Atlanta Ga to give birth at Northside Hospital.
(we had just moved and my OB was in Atl)

*Christmas shopping while I was in labor because the hospital sent me away until I progressed further.

*Laboring in a hotel across the street from the hospital.

*31 hours of labor

*A delicious epidural at hour 25.

*Scarfing down a #1 combo from McDonald's almost immediately after giving birth because I hadn't eatin in hours because my stupid OB wouldn't let me and I was STARVING!

*Griffin being so calm that as the nurse checked his vitals she bizarrely said to Roger "do something to make him cry" so Roger, not knowing exactly what to do in that moment gently shouted "Go mow the lawn!" at Griffin. Laughter ensued at that exhausted moment.

*Feeling overwhelmed with joy to meet the baby that I had waited my whole life to love.

*Lots of snuggles, kisses, and exhaustion.

Happy 5th Birthday Griffin.
You are the love of my life!

I'm late to the party, but HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, GRIFFIN!!!

Love that you scarfed McDonald's after delivery. They didn't let me eat until the next day. I had a grilled cheese and it never tasted so good!
