My little 7 year old man...
Today is a very special day, my second born is now 7 years old. He was born at 6:20a.m. 12th May 1999. When he was born there was such a pause in time it seemed..between his birth and the nurses handing him to me...I was unaware at the time that he was being resusitated right then and there...part of the reason was because I had sucked the gas cylinder off the wall just prior to his head crowning. He was so cold all day long after his birth, I hugged him close to my body for warmth and wrapt him in lots of blankets too.
When they handed my baby to me I looked down and there he was..baby Nicholas...a brother for young Tomas to play with. As a gift I got a Mr Bean Bear for Mr T from the new baby.. he cherishes it to this day.
When Nick was an hour old I was asked by my friends who are staff there at the hospital if I wouldn't mind moving to a shared room as there were 12 births the night Nick was born and they needed a LDR (Labor Delivery Recovery) Room for any perspective mum's coming in the door. As it was my 2nd baby I didn't mind. I could help the other mum's with their breastfeeding anyhow.
My, 7 years has gone by so darn fast..I have to remember this because when things seem so hard at times I just know that it is only for that little while..and that the little people we bought into the world aren't going to be little for very long. I just hope they keep on hugging me and giving me kisses on the cheek..yet not giving me cheek either, LOL!!
