I still remember going in for our sonogram to find out if we were having a boy or girl.
To be honest I wouldn't have been able to tell by looking at it until the nurse pointed it out to us.
N was 6 days early. When I went to the OB for my last visit and she told me that I was ready to have him. So she stripped my membranes and told me go get some lunch close by and she will see me soon. Alston & I decided to have lunch at a fancy Japanese restaurant I've been wanting to go to. Afterwards we went to a bookstore to kill some time. Funny when I was browsing around the store a lady said to me. "Boy it looks like you can have your baby any minute now." Little did she know she was right on the dot. Once I felt the contractions coming on stronger I told Alston it was time to go. We went to the hospital around 3 or 4 in the afternoon. While I was changing into those "lovely" hospital gowns my water broke. After that everything seem to go so quickly. This time it only took about 20-30 minutes to push this guy out. Our little tiger arrived at 7:40 pm, 7lbs 5 oz. It was pure joy holding him in my arms and having him suck his thumb so loudly. haha! Funny thing is that he never really sucked his thumb after that.

Happy Birthday my little prince charming! (Because he's sure knows how to charm one's heart)
