Happy Birthday Prince #1

November 4, 2005. I woke up to what I thought were really bad cramps due to the baby not having much room to move. I couldn’t go back to sleep because I was so uncomfortable so I called my BFF, sister, and confidant (Connie) to wish her a happy birthday. As I explained to her what I was feeling, she was telling me that I was just being a hypochondriac, as usual. As our conversation progressed my cramps became more and more intense. Little did I know this day would change my life…forever…

I had been on bed rest since September 26th (my birthday) and had gone through all the CSI-Vegas seasons, baby magazines, books I could get my hands on from the library. I knew every morning’s show rundown…the news, then Martha Stewart (she had just wrapped up all her Halloween shows) at 10am followed by The Price Is Right at 11am…

Well…I missed all my shows and by 3:57pm I had delivered a beautiful healthy baby boy…

November 4, 2009. This morning we woke him up and sang him HAPPY BIRTHDAY…and my heart was on fire as he blew out his candle and said… “where are my presents?”… That's all we got... (we both laughed so hard)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY my PRINCE I pray we have many more to celebrate with YOU!!!

Yes I called you a hypochondriac, because you are one!! I remember that day so well. Early in the morning you were sounding so happy. Four hours later your mom calls me saying "It's Time!" I didn't believe her until I heard your moans in the background. I ran to the hospital to see you shaking in the bed. I left with your mom for a few minutes, only to turn back around and drive like a mad woman back to the hospital because you were about to give birth. Needless to say, November 4, 2005 was my best birthday ever! I love you guys!!
