Although this was my second child the experience was just an incredible as the first.
It was 7pm on the dot and I was putting my 17 month daughter to bed. As I lifted her into the cot I had a monster contraction. I knew right away it was time to make tracks. Funny how the second time around as a mother you just know when it's 'go' time.
My husband had stepped out to the corner shop to buy more milk and when he came home I was already on the phone arranging for someone to come watch my daughter. I remember my husband saying "Honey, are you sure this is the real deal?" I remember looking glazingly at him with a sarcastic look on my face as I held my breath through a contraction "Yes, dear! Don't question me. He is DEFINITELY on his way!" : )
My cousin was at my house within minutes of my phone call to her and we were out the door and on our way to the hospital.
On January 23rd at 1:55am we welcomed a gorgeous baby boy into the world. Words can not describe how blessed I feel to have been able to bring another child into this world. My heart is so full of joy. I can't wait to introduce him to the world.
