A Year Ago

Quentin enjoying birthday cake last night.

A year ago right now, my water broke on the exam table at the hospital. I was leaking amniotic fluid, they checked me, they were going to send me home, but then, a minute after the doctor left the room, my water broke all over the table. We told Quentin he had to stay in until after the Anne Hanson workshop (Saturday, November 27th, 2010) and had to hang in until after Jamie's poker tournament (Sunday, November 28th, 2010), and then, on Monday, November 29th, my water broke. At least he listened! I wasn't due for another month, but Quentin decided he didn't want to share a birthday month with anyone in his house (Sean & Jamie share December birthdays, and Mackenzie & I share June), and made an appearance the last day of November.

Tomorrow, Quentin turns 1. My baby turns 1. I'm so not ready.

Off to go hyperventilate....

Today, my sunny boy turns four. It's amazing, humbling, delightful and awful how quickly time goes. How did I not realise, Robyn, that we were, for a brief brief time, in labour on the same day, if three years apart. Congratulations tomorrow, and Happy Birthday Quentin. You were born into a super fun family.

My son turns 3 in a week. I have no idea there these 3 years went. I can only imagine how you feel with your kiddo turning 1.

A very warm happy birthday to Quentin.

Oh my gosh! 1 years old! That's too fast!

Funny enough, I was 36 weeks and working in the hospital. I didn't realize my water was leaking. I drove 45 mins, picked up the daughter from daycare, changed clothes, layed on the sofa. I could have just stayed at work. Oh well, it worked out. We didn't have to arrange to get the 2nd car home.
