Ahhhhhh… I have managed, with my limited funds, to get a plane ticket out to see my babies next month, and be there for my sons 7th birthday! I am elated, as I missed his birthday last year and celebrated it 2 months later with him. It really breaks my heart to miss these special times so I am so excited that I will be there this year. 🙂
I am making them each a little photo album of pictures that begins when they were in my tummy until present day. They absolutely LOVE looking at their birth pictures and they get a kick out of what they call their “belly patches” (which in reality is their umbilical cords, LOL). While visiting in February, the kids wanted to look at their birth pictures constantly (which I have uploaded to snapfish), and out of the blue while driving in the car, my son said, “Dad, did you know that we came out of my Mom’s toes and we had belly patches?” Bahahaha!! Of course we are not going to have the “where do babies come from” chat just yet, so we laughed our tooshes off at that and just let it be. In the birth pictures, they are not too graphic at all, and all the see is my feet in stirrups and PRESTO! Baby!
So yes, both my little ones were delivered through my toes and they had rockin’ “belly patches”. Ahhhh, from the mouths of babes.
