What I was doing 19 years ago today....

Giving birth to a big headed boy! Only 6 lbs 5oz and he still broke my tailbone! I couldn't sit upright for 6 weeks! Now my first born is all grown up: 6 foot, 190 lbs of bearded hairy man. My sweet boy was in a hurry to enter the world. He was born 3 weeks early, I still had a week left to work before my maternity leave. He also decided to be born in 5 hours from start to finish in the most painful, natural back labor ever! Of couse snapping my tailbone on the way out shows his impatience to get started in the world.

He has continued to be impulsive and impatient even now. Funny how those traits are with us from the beginning.
It's a sad and happy day for me today. Happy I was able to keep him safe so he could reach this age and sad because my little boy is really now gone.

1st day home. OMG I look like I'm 16! I was really 23 folks, honest. Wow look how skinny I was after his birth! That so didn't happen with my second child!
Happy 19th Birthday RJ!!! MOM loves you!!!
