Today my sweet little boy turns 6. How is that possible? If I really stop and think about it, it’s super hard to remember my pregnancy with him. There are a few things that I remember about the day. I remember waking up having a terrible headache and around noon I finally decided to go get my BP checked.
I remember the Super Bowl was on in the Hospital room. I remember keeping my bra on the entire day and a nurse asking me why. I remember after the super bowl, a nurse came in and handed me 2 percocets and said “Here, take these, we’re having a baby tonight!”. I remember Shane calling our families to tell them to make the drive to us. I remember my doctor delivering Landon in Green Bay Packers scrubs (they had just won the super bowl) and telling us that Aaron Rogers was a good name for a boy. I remember seeing Landon for the first time, and feeling more love than I ever knew possible. I remember my doctor stitching me back together after my c-section, talking to the other doctor about the movie Seabiscuit.
And that’s about the extent of my memory. I was on a lot of medication for my blood pressure so I’m convinced that it messed me up.
I’m so thankful people took tons of videos and pictures because sadly, I think that’s how I will always remember his birth.
I am so thankful to have this little man in my life, and I am so thankful that I delivered him early due to pre eclampsia because my clotting issue was undiagnosed back then, and well…I just can’t even think about that.
I love you Landon. You are so incredibly amazing.
