7 years ago today....

the most wonderful thing happened....a baby was born, and so were a Mommy and Daddy. My baby boy, B, was born at 1 pm December 4 and I immediately fell in love with him. All through my pregnancy I felt very little attachment to this little guy (constant puking will do that) but the moment he was born he was Mommy's boy.

Daddy called at midnight and talked to us on the phone. It took a while to name him and our Mother's were going crazy! I told them he couldn't be named until Brian called. Then we were so happy to talk that we forgot to name him. When the phone card ran out both my Mom and MIL looked at me and simultaneously yelled "A NAME" in complete exasperation! It was lots of fun.

Finally they left the hospital room when Brian called back so we could talk privately and then we named him. BHM. H is after my Grandmother who died the same year B was born. B is a name we both like a lot. It was very hard to name him. We have no idea how we'll ever come up with another boy's name.

But I digress....B is an amazing boy. He's doing well at school. His teachers report that he loves to learn! He will go to the museums here and spend ages at each exhibit, studying it and really learning about it. He really enjoyed football this year though I think there was more fooling around than actual playing, but he had fun. He likes Taekwondo, most of the time. He loves to play with his friends. Currently we're blessed to have some of our best friends staying with us. He has asked every year since we moved away from them if they can come to his birthday party and this year his wish came true.

He's now sleeping. I still can't believe that my baby is 7. How do they keep getting older - I don't think I've gotten that much older. Happy Birthday baby boy! I love you!


  1. Awww so sweet! Happy birthday to your kiddo! Am I reading that right that your hubs wasn't able to be there when he was born? Girl, you just rocketed right on up to Air Force Wife Rock Star status in my book! John was deployed when I had the "Oh look, there is another baby in there and they are boys!" ultrasound but he was able to be there when they emerged from me. I hope you guys have a fabulous birthday celebration day!.....unless of course this post was written yesterday and I am just now reading which case I've missed the boat....sigh...I hate missing the boat. :)

  2. So sweet! Happy birthday to your boy! I know how hard the bonding can be during pregnancy due to hyperemesis but when you see their sweet faces, it's all over after that!

    I love the story about naming him too!

  3. Happy birthday to your son! :) We had a hard time naming Jack, the nurses at the hospital heard our top two name choices and started calling him Jack, the other name was Noah. :) Hugs!

  4. Happy birthday to your son and happy birth day to you.
    We literally could not come up with another name either LOL.

  5. Aw, what a wonderful day to remember! Naming is such a huge deal, IMO! You're giving a name to a little human who has to bear it his/her entire life! Talk about pressure :)

  6. happy birthday, b! wow, and e's birthday is tomorrow or tuesday, right??
