Happy birthday to my favorite son!!

06 May

Henry is 14 today.

Here are some things I remember about his birthday.

I didn’t know if I was having a boy or a girl.  As I was laying on the operating table, the doctor said, “Are you ready to have this little girl?”  I asked if he knew something I didn’t!   He had assumed it was a girl since I already had two.

When Henry was born he cried and cried until they put him up by my face so I could talk to him.  When he heard my familiar voice, he immediately quieted down.

When I told the crew in the OR his name, “Henry Leland”, they said it sounded very Ivy League.  Another acquaintance said “Henry Lee.  Sounds like a Blues player!”

I never let Henry leave my room in the hospital.  There was a policy stating that the baby was NOT to be sleeping in the bed with the mother.  I broke that rule, and was scolded by all but one nurse.  My night nurse was a large, black woman who after seeing Henry in bed with me said, “That is a lucky baby.”  🙂

As you can see from my post earlier this week – – Henry is AWESOME, and I am proud to be his mom.
