Happy birthday to my 6 year-old

Being my first, I had no idea what to expect from pregnancy when I saw those 2 lines after getting pregnant with Joshua. I had naive ideas in my head of that "glow" I thought would magically eminate from me for nine months. In my imaginings, that glow did not include nausea, vomit, multiple hospitalizations for severe dehydration, gaining about 600 lbs despite said dehydration, being induced 11 days after my due date, pushing for 2 hrs and 20 minutes (while STILL throwing up), or contractions that made my sister-in-law cry just from hearing them over the phone. Nope, none of that.

But, boy was he worth every minute of it.

I just can't believe our first babies are 6 years old (well, almost for Jonah). Just think - 6 more years and we'll be looking the teenage years square in the eye. Yikes!! Happy Birthday, Joshua!
