The big day has arrived! He’s been waiting for it for a couple of months. I’m pretty sure he’s been asking me if it’s his birthday at least once a week since the middle of summer. And it’s finally arrived!
Happy 4th birthday to my little man!
Happy 4th Birthday W!
Four years ago today I became a mom. I remember the day before telling my belly that I was done being pregnant (a week before my due date) and that he could come whenever he wanted. Since very early on in my pregnancy, I had figured out what day I needed to work through so that my maternity leave would last as long as possible due to school breaks. I needed to work through December 3rd.
So anytime after 3:30 in the afternoon on December 3rd was fair game. And I told him that for the majority of the pregnancy.
I like to think that he listened to me and that is why he waited until December 4th!
I can still remember some of the details of that day and am glad I shared his water birth story so I can remember even more. I never imagined being a mom to a little boy but being a boy mom sure can be a blast!
So here’s to the amazing adventures that being four will bring to W and our family! I cannot wait to see him continue to grow into the little boy he has become. He’s not my baby anymore but it’s so much fun to see life through his eyes!
