Eleven years ago I gave birth to my first child. I had no idea what being a mother would entail. I truly was clueless. I have a very difficult delivery that ended up in an emergency c-section, and a recovery process that I thought would never end but in my arms I had my first son. A little man who had colic for the first 3 months of his life. I remember starting the shower after putting him safe in his crib and just listening to the water run to give myself a break from the crying. It was a tough beginning to say the least but after getting used to the challenge of parenting and him growing out of his colic we (my husband and I)realized we were totally in love with this little boy. He has the deepest dimples and the most beautiful eyes and from 6 months on has had the most tender heart I have ever known. God has given him such a sweet spirit and we couldn’t be more proud of him. He woke up this morning so excited about his birthday and we had such a wonderful day with him, he picked tacos for dinner and chocolate cake. We feel so blessed to have this boy in our family. Happy Birthday Sam, we love you so much!
