Back in November of 2007, when I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive, I was totally and completely surprised. We weren’t trying, honestly, I was scared.
I called my sister and told her. We realized how much sense it made since I was with her the weekend before and I actually took a nap. Back then I never napped.
I was going to wait to tell my Mom. I sat down later that evening and figured out the due date and sure enough, the due date was July 20th, 2008.
I knew I simply had to tell her. I picked up the phone and told her. This is just one more reason why James and Jake are so incredibly special.
Last year on her birthday, we told her I was pregnant with Elijah. (we had just found out the day before.)
She opened her card, read and then cried, saying that was what she wished for.
Fast forward to this year, TODAY, her birthday, Elijah is here and she’s so in love with him.
While we were in the hospital after he was born and those first few weeks when all he did was cry, my Mom was always there, helping, in any way she could.
We are so grateful for that and for her.
My Mom and Eli – March 30, 2010
We love you, Mom! We are so happy to be celebrating you today!
