WOW my little boy is turning 6!!!

March 18, 2008

This time 6 years ago I was probably calling my work (Deseret First Credit Union) and telling them that I wasn't feeling to good and wouldn't be in for work, pretty much used and abused the pregnancy, going to have a baby in a week, excuse...In reality, I had started into the first stage of labor, but I didn't know THAT at the time. We started timing my contractions the night before and they were about 10-20 minutes apart. So I just KNEW it was false labor so I didn't worry too much! I remember I slept REALLY good that night for some reason...maybe it was my bodies way of letting me know I was about to have the biggest and LONGEST workout of my life! I had attended Bradley Classes for natural birthing and MountainSport Man and I decided together that I was going to have a go at doing it natural. I wasn't against the epidural...I just wanted to try the best that I could to do it without anything. Lisa, my older sister, had all of her kids natural and I couldn't let her out do me! I'm not going to go into detail about DCar's birth, but I do want to say that it was one of the GREATEST most REWARDING experiences of my life...and guess what...I did it ALL natur.a.l. BABY!!! I had read everything I could about the process of birth, I had taken the classes, and I was ready mentally to have my baby. The birth was actually text book...I can honestly say it wasn't the WORST pain I have ever been in, but it was definitely the MOST exhausting thing I have ever done! I went into the hospital around 4:00pm and had DCar somewhere around 10:00pm! I remember the orange juice I had after having DCar...it was the best ORANGE JUICE I have ever tasted...and have ever tasted since! I also remember vividly right after DCar joined the earth and the certified nurse that birthed my baby handed him to me and I remember thinking, "He is so perfect..." I was amazed that he had all of his fingers and toes! He was so beautiful...and he had the most perfect little round head...phew...no cone head...I pushed him out fast...but I am paying for that now...if you don't know what I mean than be glad because you probably don't have them! :)
I decided I wanted to show you the last 5 years of birthdays we have had with DCar! DCar from the beginning has been a mellow child! He loves people! He loves ALL of his RELATIVES. He has a knack of making you feel like you are the most special person to him! We love him so much and I am so glad that my Father in Heaven blessed and trusted me with his incredible spirit! Happy Birthday little man!
