Sincerely 'Fro Me to You-Baby boy....


Welcoming Muffin #6...

I was reminded of this time in my life by reading Kristen's Sincerely 'Fro Me to You. Though my trauma came from the fact that this lil' boy was going to leave for college someday. (Thank you raging hormones!)

At the very minute this picture was taken I was in a state of euphoria. We just had a son. He was healthy & content. Even nursed like a champ! (Must be a guy thing!?) Life was goooood.

After 5 girls, we called it quits. But God's plans were different. Thankfully. We found out at 20 weeks that we were having a boy & he was due Christmas day! What a gift. Everyone around us eagerly anticipated the arrival of the Buller Boy! I had an amazing shower, thanks to The Maid. It truly made me feel special & left me speechless.

Though it was not my first child, I experienced a lot of 'firsts'. First time I went into labor without being induced. First time I labored at home with a doula. (Thanks Shannon!) First time I was rushed to the hospital by my husband driving approximately 100 mph! The first time I got to triage and all the nurses scrambled to help me into a room, instead of looking at me as though they already new it was false labor! First time I experienced the 'ring of fire'....OUCH! The first time I was blessed with a son.

And most importantly, the first time that I truly felt God's Grace lavished upon me.

What a cutie. I am so glad you got a boy. What a change of pace on so many levels.

I remember caroling the night that you went into labor...must have been all of the walking and the sweet sound of my voice that made him want to come out. He thought..."angels, I hear angels."

Mwaaahhaaaahaaaaa.

That is me hysterically laughing because my singing voice is like a catfight...loud, shrill, and quite possibly dangerous.

Love the muffin, though. We can call him banana nut...cuz your other varieties are nutless...hahahahahahaha.

I crack myself up...can you tell?
