9 Long Years Ago
Today was the day that our first baby boy was due to arrive. As brand new parents, we expected that our son would abide by this time table and arrive accordingly. Little did we know that the kid would be forced to evacuate nearly 2 weeks AFTER his estimated arrival time. Always has been a stubborn kid. I like to say that he'd probably still be in there if we hadn't pried him out. Of course, I probably should have known that his entrance into the world would be a bit tardy. There was a wise-old OB at my Dr's office who placed his hands on my swollen, 16 week gestated belly and proclaimed that this baby would be a boy, born 2 weeks late, around 9 lbs. How right would he be?
