Happy Birthday Tyler!

On this day, 9 years ago, I became a mother for the first time when my son Tyler Ryan Hendriksen was born. He came 3 weeks early. I didn't expect that. I didn't really think that I was in labor. Being a first time mom, I didn't want to go into the hospital thinking I was in labor and have them send me home because I was having gas pains. So, while I was on our bed on all 4's, having hard contractions and telling Ryan we needed to wait to go to the hospital, he was packing a bag for me. It's a good thing he could tell the signs of labor better than I could.

I was so absorbed in what was happening, that I thought the drive to the hospital only took about 5 minutes. It really took around 20-30. We got to the hospital between 8 and 9 pm. I was checked and sure enough, I was in labor. That was when I started freaking out. This was for real and it really hurt. I thought that I was tough enough the first time around to have a drug free delivery. I should have been a little better prepared. I kind of freaked out a little too much and got an epidural. I don't regret that decision, because his birth was the most traumatic as far as interventions go. No, nothing serious, just lots of stitches. So, the epidural was a nice thing to have had. I just didn't like the effects of it after. On me and on him. He was my most sleepy baby. I did have three drug free deliveries later. So, I got to live my dream. ☺ No sarcasm was intended there.

Tyler was born at 12:16 a.m. weighing 7 lbs. and was 20 inches long. I thought he was the most amazingly beautiful baby I had ever seen. And of course he was. He started my journey on the road to motherhood (and Crazy Town) and now here I am with 4. I can hardly believe it, because in my mind, he should still be my little baby. He sometimes still likes to act like it. No, I'm not trying to imply that he's naughty. Although he can be sometimes. ☺ He's a good cuddler and is always ready for a hug or a kiss from his mom. I am so proud of my son. He's such a smart, talented, funny and entertaining boy. He's the best firstborn any mother could ask for. Happy Birthday Tyler!

That was a really sweet post, I also love Tyler but for different reasons. That kid just cracks me up and he always has even when he was tiny and I had to bribe him with popcorn so I could cut his hair! I love your little guy even though he is not so little anymore, I hope he has a very happy birthday!
