the Boy Man

He's 14 today!  The day he was born I was standing in line at the grocery store.  The girl working the cash asked how I was today, and I said, "I think I am in labor".  I've never seen anyone scan items so fast in my life! Walmart cashiers should take note!! My mother scurried us home, having been waiting for 10 days for this boy to arrive.  Sort of seems his personality, "it's pretty cozy in here, I think I'll just stay for awhile longer".  I told KD to come home from work, but not to rush.  I wasn't going in til I had to, and didn't want the option of any drugs.  By 6:30 we were waiting at the train crossing near the hospital for an endless line of cars.  I walked into L&D and they quickly assessed I looked not so bad, though the nurses were almost making bets on the 10 pounder in there, so didn't rush too quickly.  I got settled and checked to be 8cm.  Well then it all happened fast and furious and within the half hour, the nurse was yelling in the hall for a Dr. to come from anywhere.  Let's just say he wasn't amused, and she was the one to deliver Jacob at 7:54 pm,  9 pounds 8.5 ounces of all boy! 

You make us smile every day!
