Will was born on a Friday four years ago. He was due on October 28th and was almost a week overdue. I had gone to the hospital early on the morning of November 2nd to be induced, and I'd been in labor all day with little progress. After many hours of pushing, my doctor (who is wonderful) made the decision to deliver Will by c-section. Will's birthday would have been on the 2nd, but there was an emergency c-section ahead of me in the operating room. All of the waiting and labor was worth it and Will was born on November 3, 2006 at 12:40 A.M. He weighed 9 pounds, 7 ounces and was 22 inches long. We were all surprised at what a big baby he was!

Looking back on these photos makes me teary-eyed. I still vividly remember his birth like it was yesterday. The years really do fly by and your children grow up before you realize it. Will is four, and I can hardly believe it. Reminiscing reminds me that we're so blessed to have such a happy, healthy little one who is growing to be a precious, little boy.
