Happy 10th Birthday to our first-born

I can not believe you are
10 years old today!
10 years ago....
at 6:47 am you made your big entrance
into this world!

Breach.
I had a c-section after laboring all night,
naturally (with no drugs)
Super-hero mode.
Then they figured out
that
was not your head.
It was your bum.

I was knocked out to stop contractions
and later in the day I found out I had
a blue eyed baby boy that was 21 3/4 inches long!

I saw a Polaroid
(obviously circa 1999)
because I was immobile for over a day
due to being hooked to IV antibiotics after
spiking a fever during labor
and you were in the NICU
due to low blood sugar.

You looked HUGE in the pic
and I could not believe
you had EVER been
tucked into my belly.
7 lb 14 oz
of beautiful boy.

We both went home two days later
you were nursing beautifully
and both of us were
happy as can be.

10 years later.
Present-day smart-alleck
future debate team president
and defense attorney.

We love you so much.
Happy Birthday, Dylan!!

Can't believe you have a 10 year old, you still look like you're 21!

Thank you for being so faithful to pray for us.
