Time goes so fast! Ethan is 5 today. So 5 years ago, right now, i was in pain. Alot of pain. lol I went into labour at 1.30am on the 17th of February 2004. He was born after a lot of hassel at 6.33pm. I think that was the longest day of my life. I was so glad he was out though, i cried when i saw him for the first time and he had my chin. Unfortunately i didn't get to hold him until the next day because he was in Special Care because they were worried about his breathing and he had a huge lump on his head because he had to be born with help of the vaccum. Even though he was 9lbs, he was so tiny.

It hasn't been an easy 5 years. We had a rough start Ethan and I but i'm so glad he's a part of our family. He can be such a good boy and is always making us laugh. :)

Me 8 mths pregnant. This is the only photo i have of me at the end of my pregnancy.
