Happy Birthday to my little man!

I can't believe it's been a year!  One year ago I was prepping for a c-section!  Little did I know when I went in that I would miss his birth.  The spinal blocks and epidurals did not work (after 2 tries of each, OUCH!) so I was completely under.  Looking back, that was probably a good thing.  I didn't get to see him for several hours after he was born, and I was pretty high on pain pills most of the time, so the wait didn't seem so long!  He was born at 36 weeks, technically a late-term preemie, at a whopping 7lbs 15ozs!  The nurses said that he was the biggest preemie that had seen in awhile!  Of course I have to share some "then & now" photos!

Just a little bit after birth.  Jason took this photo so I could see him, since he was in the nursery for breathing issues and I was in recovery.

Just a few months old and he loves to smile!

And here he is today! (well, a couple days ago!)  He certainly has changed in the past year!

Happy Birthday baby boy!!!
