Six years ago today was one of the best days of my life. Well, maybe the actual day wasn't that great. It started with abdominal surgery, after all. But it was the day I became a mom, which makes it one of the best days ever.
We learned Baby was breech about two weeks before his due date. I underwent a procedure to try to turn him, which was both incredibly painful and unsuccessful. I was devastated. After weeks of childbirth classes and all the other preparations, we weren't planning on a c-section. But it went smoothly and that's all that mattered.
We weren't allowed to take pictures in the operating room, so there aren't any photos of his actual delivery, or him being weighed and measured. Instead, the first picture of our son was taken in my post-surgery recovery room. Beautiful. Perfect. Me, not so much.
Family and friends were eager to visit us in the hospital and meet Baby. I had gotten it in my head that no one would be allowed to learn Baby's name until they came to meet him in person. I knew that while I was being stitched up and sent to recovery, Steve would be the one phoning family members one by one to let them know the baby had arrived. I didn't want to miss being there to reveal the name and hear everyone's reactions.
So the title "Introducing Trevor" really means exactly that.
Happy birthday Trevor! These past 6 years have been the best years of my life. I love you!
