In the last 17 years I have had the best birthday cakes. You see, I share my birthday my kiddo plus or minus 6 hours.

I was overdue by 2 weeks according to the due date the doctor had originally stated. We had gone to dinner and on the drive home I had forgotten about an appointment. We u-turned around and went to the hospital. The doctors there decided it was best we induce. It took 24 hours and no epidural but the baby arrived at a healthy 9lbs 4oz.
The doctors joked to hold off another 6 hours so we could have the same birthday. Ha, no.

It has been challenging at times but I would do it all over again. I love you sweet child and hope this new year brings you everything you set your mind to.
