What a day!

Yesterday, December 5th, was the 109th anniversary of the birth of Walt Disney.

Now, lets fast forward 108 years to December 5th, 2009.

I woke up "early" (pre-baby early) to call the hospital about being induced.  My induction date had been set for a  few weeks (set for 41 weeks - 1 week past due date), but I had seriously hoped not to need it.  However, by the time I reached 41 weeks, I was more than ready to have the baby.

We had expected to have our baby come into the world on 12/5/09 - he would have shared a birthday with Walt!  How amazing would that have been?  I share a birthday with Paula Abdul.. not quite as cool..

However, the labor and delivery ward was booked and I didn't end up being induced until 11 pm that night.  He really didn't want to come out (took 24 hours!).. which means..

Today is my son's 1st birthday.  I have a ONE year old.  That just boggles my mind.  I teared up thinking about it last night..
Asleep on Daddy.. check out the Mario pj's
How is it possible?

How time flies!


  1. Happy Birthday, Noah!
    I agree on time flying by. My "baby" turned 3 on Saturday and it is hard to imagine where the time has gone. My first baby turns 6 on Tuesday and it is amazing to think back on the day he was born. It seems like it was just yesterday!

  2. Aw, happy birthday, big guy!! My oldest is about to turn 5 next month and will start kindergarten in August--it flies by so fast!
