Happy Birthday, Sweet Cheeks!

Five years ago today I was strapped down to a table feeling my body going numb and telling my anesthesiologist that I COULD NOT breath! He insisted that I was doing so or I would not have been able to KEEP telling him that I COULD NOT breath. So, I was over-exaggerating a bit...give a woman a break...I was having my belly cut open for the love of Pete!! Mind you, this was my first time in a hospital as a patient and I had NEVER been cut open before! However, I was in a state of calm. Even though a c-section was not in my birth plan, I was at peace. There was one thing I knew for sure and that was I wanted the baby that had been growing inside my belly for a complete 9 months OUT...and SOON!! Previous to being strapped to a table, my doctor told me that the baby had flipped since I had been in his office 5 days prior. He proceeded to tell me that I had 3 options...they could "manipulate" the baby...NO...they could send me home to wait it out...I DON'T THINK SO...or they could prep me for a c-section and we could celebrate a birthday!...I'll take door #3! That's how it happened. One episode of The Price's Right later and I was "giving birth" to an 8lb 5 oz little angel! He was one cute baby (I'm not biased or anything). I had never felt more complete in my entire life. I was a mom! I remember leaving the hospital 4 days later thinking, "They're just gonna let me leave with this baby? No instruction manual, or how-to-guide?" Even though I was 26 years old, for some reason at that moment I felt like a kid. There were some crazy moments...getting peed on, pooped on, spit up on...trying to breastfed...trying not to beat myself up when that didn't last long...figuring out formulas...sleepless nights...groggy days...but it was oh-so-worth it! Five years later, it feels like just yesterday. Where does 5 years go? I told Isaiah the other night that I couldn't believe he was going to be 5 and that I missed him being a baby...my baby. He told me, "Oh, momma that's OK...if you ever miss me being a baby, you can just look at my pictures...I was a really cute baby." The next day he informed me that he had to start taking showers because he is about to be a man! LOL...I'm glad we have a few years before that happens. I love him SO much...to the moon and back.

Happy birthday to you!! Oh how cute. It is wonderful isn't it? A man that is to funny, that sounds like something Jaden would say to me. He told me they other day he doesn't wear a shirt in the house becaue real men don't wear shirts at home. To funny, boys you gotta love them.

I remember getting your phone call telling me you were going to have a C-Section, me calling Nic to come home from work, and heading to the hospital. I remember the first song in the car that I heard was Sherly Crow "The first cut is the deepest" and it made me laugh. I can't believe how fast 5 and 6 years pass...how big our boys have grown...how they get on our every nerves...how we love them anyway! lol!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISAIAH!

Just wanted to stop by to say you are so right...everything can be described as "just a phase," even if it isn't! It makes me feel better to think so...and we have to laugh, no matter what! :)
