(December 26, 2008)
While I don't remember very much from the actual labor and delivery of Miles I do remember the night before very well. I remember Drew giving me a blessing. He blessed me to have a safe, and swift delivery. Both granted. He blessed me to have an abundance of love for the child which we would soon meet.
(Pretty sure we're discussing my many chins here.)
I remember him lying in the hospital bed with me all night long. Cuddling, massaging, comforting. I remember him making me and everyone else in the room laugh all through the induction process. He has truly perfected the art of calming me with his sense of humor. I remember being so so so glad I chose him. And he chose me. And that we were blessed to create life together.
So for my favorite memory I choose the night before Miles was born. It was sacred and special and brought me closer to the one person I didn't believe it possible to become any closer to. And it ended with Miles! What better memory to share?
(The day our lives changed forever for the better.)
