Flashback Friday: Two Years (& 1 Day) Ago

Happy Friday, Kitschies!!  I had my first official day back at work on Thursday and let me tell you...it lasted FOREVER!  Why, oh why, can't I be full of money and not have to worry about working?  Imagine all the things I could get done!  Anyway...Thursday wasn't just a day back to work.  It was also Mason's 2nd birthday.  I can not believe he's already 2 and it makes me sad to think that I no longer have a baby in the house.  Walk with me as I reflect on my life, starting 2 years (& 1 day) ago.


To start off with...this was me at 38 weeks.  I felt gigantic.  And hot (not hawt).  And miserable.  I was ready to have this kid!


Then, the Tuesday after this pic was taken, two years ago, on June 2, 2009, I went in to labor with my second little boy, Mason.  Of course it was a boy...that's all the hubs' family is allowed to have!  I was so ready to have this kid.  And I was NOT going to wait til his due date (June 5th).  I remember waking up that Tuesday morning VERY upset that I hadn't had him overnight.  I'll spare you the gory details, but about 4 hours after labor started, out popped my beautiful little boy.

That's my baby boy...and a very, very tired me.  Thanks to the stoopid anesthesiologist, that very tired me didn't get any of the good stuff epidural.  But, me strong like bull and had a rather uneventful labor and delivery.  And, just like "they" say, once Mason was put in my arms, all that terror of labor disappeared.

Mr Mason was a great baby.  Not hardly fussy.  Slept very well.  No troubles at all.  We really were blessed.  If you click that pic to make it bigger, you can see his cowlick in the front.  That's his unicorn horn...he just doesn't know it yet!

Now for the rest of the pics...

Little fuzzy head Mason - about 6 months old.  It took him so long to really grow hair...and now he has a LOT of it!


My two favorite pics from his first birthday.  That top one looks like he's upset, but he was super excited to have that big chunk of cake to himself.  I can't believe this was a year ago already!

18 months old and two chipped front teeth!  Oh, the joys of raising an active toddler.  Do you see all that hair?!

Mother's Day 2011.  Mason didn't quite know what to do at first, but once he got in to it, he was like a little cute pig in mud.

And his birthday.  He was so excited to get his little cupcake.  I made cupcakes for his daycare class, too, which I'm sure the teachers really appreciated.  LOL

Happy 2nd birthday, Mr Bug.  I can't wait to see what you're going to grow up like.

Thanks for strolling down Memory Lane with me!  Check out Christopher & Tia for other great Friday Flashbacks!
