Where did the time go?

8 years ago today we were in a hospital room watching TV waiting for the doctor to tell us if the medicine was working to stop my contractions.  It wasn't and at 8:30 in the evening on Sept. 20, we were told that Mason was not going to wait any longer- within 24 hours we would be holding our first baby boy.  Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine how that precious baby would change not only our lives but the lives of so many others.  I know that for the next 24 hours I will be replaying that day over and over in my head and on my blog.  I hope you will indulge me as I remember that amazing day!  Here is a picture of what he looks like now.  Happy Birthday Weekend, Son!  I love you!

I remember! I remember your shower with both out bellies out to .... there. And seeing Mason for the first time in NICU. And hearing about you getting to Kangaroo him for the first time. And when he came "running" when Abs was born -- with Alan to hang out with him.
