HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! I hope you are all doing well after a late night?? We were in bed by 1. All we did was hang out and play the wii and eat things that are surely not on MY diet!! :) The bad thing is that we were just about asleep when Don received a phone call from the PD and had to go in and work an accident. He then did not get home until 430. It is 1030 and everyone is still sleeping! We are headed to grandparents today to celebrate the New Year and to celebrate my boy turning 16. I AM OLD!! :p
Randy was born at 12:29 am on New Year's Day in 1993. He was a little over 3 weeks early so you can imagine our surprise! He was the first baby born in that hospital that year and the first actually born on the 1st in like 4 or 5 years so we got a lot of attention!! He was born on a Military post as well so...I remember just getting settled in my room and trying to rest and the nurses coming in and saying, "You may want to get up and shower the General will be here at 10 to see you and the baby!" We were pretty famous for a few days! We even made the front page of the paper there! I only stayed in the hospital for that night and then I just wanted to get home to our other little one as well.
I feel so blessed to be Randy's Mom. He is such a great kid and quickly becoming a man! YUCK!!! He has goals and plans he has set for himself. I can't wait to see what God has planned for him. I know he will so something great in his life. He is looking forward to being a big brother. He has wanted a brother for a long time! The girls have even said that he can be the first to hold our little guy when we arrive home! We all are reminded (by him) how long He has waited for a brother! :)
