Happy 4th Birthday Charles


September 21, 2012

It was Friday of September 19, 2008 my husband and I were driving on our way home after his doctor’s check-up. My knees were weak and I felt like I need to eat something sweet so I told my husband to buy 3 Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts. It was my last trimester of my pregnancy and I had no idea I was starting early labor at that time already. I stayed in bed the whole afternoon and my husband went back to school. The next day which is Saturday, I stayed in bed all day. At night my husband, and I decided to watch a movie Indiana Jones. At the theater I could feel when Charles kept on moving inside my stomach. The contractions weren’t painful so I wasn’t expecting Charles will come out anytime soon.

Of course when my husband, and I attended on the Lamaze Class it was different than what I had learned in the class. Besides my due date was September 29, and my OBGYN is going to induce me on September 28. Anyway, it was very early Sunday morning when I feel stronger contractions. My husband called the hospital. On our way to the hospital we aren‘t lucky hitting all the stop lights. It was round 9 o’clock in the morning when we arrived at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield, Missouri. A nurse took my vital signs and every thing was normal. I was already dilated of 5 cm so I was admitted on that day. Got my epidural and around 3:30 in the afternoon of September 21, 2008 a 6 lbs 10 oz 20 inches long our bundle of joy arrived in our lives.

It was the most precious moment when I saw and held Charles wrapped around in my arms. As a first time mom I was worried how I am going to put his clothes on? Charles skin was so smooth and so delicate I was so afraid to touch him at first. And now every thing is working great for me and being a mother to my 4 year old son, Charles. He is the greatest gift that we could ever have given to us and brings so much joy to our everyday lives. To my adorable son, Charles Happy Birthday and we love you so much!
