Three Years Ago...


I was sitting down to spaghetti bolognaise with Matt, trying to ignore the contractions getting more and more intense.. In and out of a hot candelit bath, sitting in darkened rooms.. Waiting, waiting and riding those waves of intensity and imminent joy..

Tomorrow we celebrate Noah's third birthday.

My newborn, first-born big love, now a big boy.

A mixture of happiness, sadness, and excitement, all rolled into one big high-bouncer.

Happy Birthday to your little one, and Happy Birthing day to you.

How quickly does the time fly (not when having contractions, I mean the years)
