That’s right, Mr Middle is eight today. I tried to think back to his birth. And frankly, it was a long time ago — and I kind of birth a lot, but I do remember thinking extremely validated in my profession that day. I hadn’t delivered AS a labor and delivery nurse before, and it was a new experience to see what a difference a nurse can make.
I also wondered what on EARTH they’d done plopping this little fat baby on my belly for? How’d they mix up my kids without even leaving the room, or unclamping the cord? Obviously, I fed him well while he was inside, because he’s gained just about 30 pounds in those last 8 years. 🙂
He’s loving Arizona, has made a ton of friends and is really enjoying his life here.
He’s not planning on any major sins between today and tomorrow, in case you were wondering. 🙂
