Shocking but true. I have a five year old and a seven year old. Owen was born five years ago today at around noon. Something like 27 hours of labor…and the epidural didn’t work….and then a c-section. Oh well, it was still easier than Leo’s birth (wouldn’t you know it?). As soon as they gave him to me, all wrapped up like a little eggroll, I just knew there was something special about him. He smelled like a little baked good too. oh my….I’m really crazy about him.

Here he is on the day he was born (note that my hair didn’t have much gray in it….):


at age one:


at age two:


at age three:


and last year at age four:


I’ll post his official fifth birthday picture later…..
