For this challenge I opted to create a LO about my DS's 'Birth' Day. Little man is turning 3 years old on 17 June, and is a true joy in our lives. He is very special to us. He is our only boy, our last child, and he joined our lives on Father's Day! It was a very emotional day for our family, especially for Big Daddy. Koen's timing was perfect!
I remember like it was yesterday, when I was in my last month of pregnancy. We were in the middle of a move from Fort Campbell, TN to Fort Lewis, WA. I was staying with my mother while Travis was getting our home set up in WA. We had originally planned on me coming to WA after Koen was born so I didn't have to travel 36 hours in a car while being 8 months pregnant with 2 little girls and a huge dog. But one day Travis called me and was upset due to the fact that he would be missing his only son being born. He wanted to be in the delivery room as he was with our girls. Due to his job he couldn't come to me, so I packed up the car, convinced my brother to drive me, and we started the drive. We made it to WA in 2 days with little to no sleep. I was 38 weeks pregnant and scared to make this trip, but in the end it was worth ever doubt, every fear I ever had. Because 12 days later, when I saw my DH holding his son, knowing that I have given him this joy, it was all that mattered.
So, yes, I am rambling....it's been a very emotionally draining week!!! But here it is. My LO dedicated to our son on his 'Birth' Day:
