I'm quite confident that every mother remembers the birth story of their children. We know minute details that our partners would not have even noticed...let alone remember years down the road. We love to share these stories and hear others'.
Last night as I went to bed, realizing that in just a few hours time, my child would officially be 4 years old, I recalled his birth story with fondness and amazement. I find it staggering that for a child to be born, there are millions of things that have to go just right. From the moment of conception to the time your pushing out that child (or in my case as many others, when they come out via section) so many stars had to line up just right.
Last night, at 2:37am, Gage came down to our bedroom and climbed into our bed. When I asked him what was wrong he said "I just wanted to be with you". Eric and I looked at the clock and were amazed that the time was 4 minutes after the time he was born, four short years ago.
So today, I am reminded yet again, how blessed we are to have such a four year old. He's taught me a lot about myself and my husband these past four years. I'm grateful that he chose us as parents.
And seriously...where did the time go??
The toy in the foreground is Gage's gift. It's one of those marble mazes things. Hours of entertainment!!
