Flashback Friday: November 2, 2006

Six years ago today, I was fully confident that Will's birthday would be November 2nd.  That morning we went to the hospital for a scheduled induction expecting to have a baby boy later that day.  Well, that was just the beginning of learning that when your children are involved things don't always go as planned.  I had a difficult labor and eventually after many hours of pushing and a c-section, Will was born just after midnight on November 3rd.  
I love looking back at old photos and reminiscing.  A few things that caught my attention...
We look so young.
Some of the things in the living room have changed but some are exactly the same.
I was burning a fall candle.  I can see it in the background.
My belly is huge!!!  My goodness!  Little did we know that Will would weigh in at 9lbs , 7ozs.  Surprised us all, including the doctor!
I remember really wanting to take this photo even though Mark was anxious to get to the hospital.  I think I knew our lives would be forever changed after this moment.  We left the house as a couple and returned as a family.  Incredible!
Tomorrow we celebrate Will's birthday.  He's so special to us, and we are blessed to be his parents.
