Valentine's Day/Landon's 6th Birthday

Six years and one day ago was Valentine's Day in 2006. I remember I was so uncomfortable being 9 months pregnant and not wanting to do much for Valentine's Day. I remember we went to Brio on the plaza in KC to eat. I had major heartburn the rest of the night. The end. Fast forward to about 2:30 a.m. February 15th. I got up to go to the bathroom and it kept coming and coming. I thought it was never going to end. I got to thinking this wasn't normal. I went back to bed thinking it was just my imagination when all of a sudden more liquid starting coming out. I immediately went back to the bathroom and my water had broken. For some reason I was very calm and wasn't in a rush. Not usually the norm for your first pregnancy. I told Nate I wanted to take a shower and get ready. So, after about an hour we thought we should probably start heading down to St. Luke's on the plaza. I knew I was going to have a c-section because Landon was frank breech and couldn't be turned because of his size.

It didn't take long for the doctors to prep me and check me. I was dilated to a 3 but that really didn't matter. I was actually pretty calm and tried to soak up everything and remember every little detail. He was born and was a beautiful, healthy baby. 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 21 inches long and almost three weeks early. We were very excited to be on the journey of parenthood.

Today we celebrated Landon turning 6! We are sure proud of him. He is talking and learning how to read and spell. He is doing amazing. He had an amazing party with his good friends at Dynamic Gymnastics last weekend. He greeted everyone by name and gave hugs to everyone that came. So hilarious and sweet! As I think back to this day six years ago, I feel the same way today as I did then. #blessed
