Five years ago today, my water broke at 35 weeks. My husband tried to convince me I was just wetting my pants, there was no way this baby was coming this early.
He was wrong. It was labor.
We met the neonatal specialist, just as a precaution. My OB was convinced that the baby would be ok, but a 35 weeker did bring some concern.
My little trooper was born at 5:57am. That day I became a momma. My little man was 5 lbs 7 oz and super long. He was teeny tiny, but breathed strong on his own and didn’t need the NICU.
He grew like a weed. We were watched closely, being 1st time parents with a preemie. But Max did amazing!!
And now he’s five. I’m not sure where the time has gone. My little pipsqueak of a baby is now a little boy, in preschool, loving to read, with an imagination that does not quit.
Happy Birthday Max!!! Thank you for making me a Momma!!!!
