Eight Years Ago Today

Do you remember what you were doing eight years ago today? I know where I was....in the throes of pitocin induced labor without an epidural (that came around 10pm that night after a good 13 hours of so not fun pitocin-labor).

Our labor nurse took this picture because they were so impressed at "how well" we were handling labor. True to who I am, when I have pain, I pull inside so I didn't say a word or moan at all during labor. I was locked inside myself riding the waves of pain. I remember once when Dakota was helping me to the bathroom...I looked at her and quietly said "Next time we get a puppy." because holy moly was I in pain.

That's why they call is labor....and not fiesta. (Right, Dakota? :) )

I can't believe my baby boy turns 8 tomorrow. That seemed a lifetime away the day this picture was taken.

Happy Birthday to Kelton, and you, too, Casey! :)

Oh, and happy 8th parent anniversary too!

Dakota said...

"Not Fiesta."
Thank you, Cris. :)

Thank you for the hours of labor to bring our beautiful son into the world.

Oh man do I know that expression on your face! I can't believe you were in labor that long. Way to go mama. Happy birthday Kelton.

I know that for me, if I would have made much noise during labor I would have started screaming and wouldn't have stopped, so I think it was best that didn't happen. :) Epidurals are now something I am not ever going to look down on anyone getting! Happy birthing anniversary to you.
