My Baby Boy is 3 today

Three years ago today I welcomed my second little boy into the world. I remeber that day so well. I got up that morning and took a shower, I felt a little bit crampy but not really bad or anything. I got M.J. up and bathed him and got him dressed, still feeling o.k. We had a little bite to eat and I told Bobby I was going to drive over to the Dr. office since I was cramping and have him check me. Well he insisted on taking me. I got to the Dr. office and told the receptionist how I was feeling and she said the Dr. would be right with me. I go in and he checks me and says you are dialated to a 6, so you need to head to the hospital, I will meet you there shortly. I go back to the car and tell Bobby, so he kind of starts to freak out a little, he says "who should I call?" Well we get to the hospital about 10:30 a.m. or so, get up to labor and delivery and they were like you are in labor?(I was very calm, not having very much pain) They got me all hooked up to the monitors and I.V. and everyone started to show up. I remeber starting to feel like I needed to use the bathroom real bad and I told the nurse but she would not let me get up. She called the Dr. and he was already walking in the door, as he was putting his jacket and gloves on my water broke and went all over him, from neck down he was soaked. Then I hear my mom say wow he is big, she could see his head, and I said I can't do this, she scared me! Well at 1:31 p.m. on December 2, 2005 Cristian was born. All this time during my delivery Bobbay and Chad stood against the wall, both as white as ghost. And did I mention I did not use any kind of drugs during my labor, it was all natural! Here are some pics from my baby boy's first three years of life.

When Daddy Comes Home

Everyday when Bobby gets home from work Marissa is waiting at the door for him. She holds her arms up for him to pick her up, then gives him kisses and says "dada tandy, dada tandy" this is what happens then.......

She loves when "Dada" gives her "tandy" and she knows she is daddy's little girl!
