On October 10, 2010 we welcomed the newest member to our family. Born at 8:13 pm, he weighed 7lbs 14oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. And 100% perfect! We were so excited to meet EJ. When we first found out that we were pregnant and due around this time of month, we talked about how cool it would be to have a baby on 10/10/10. I just knew that it wasn’t going to happen. I tried to have Mallory on 06/07/08, but she decided to come one day later. Well, much to my surprise, I started having contractions early in the morning and after 9 hours at the hospital, he arrived! I always knew that I wanted to me a mom. But never did I understand the love that a parent has for their child. After Mallory was born, I understood. Now that I have two, one of each, I can’t put it into words how awesome it is to be a mom. My heart is bursting with love for my kids and I couldn’t ask for anything more! I can say that my life is complete!
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. – Elizabeth Stone
