Four years ago, at this precise moment, I was being admitted into our local hospital, preparing for the arrival of my beautiful baby boy. After more than six hours of active labor, it became apparent Logan was not going to take the easy way out and a cesarean had to be performed. My little guy had turned his head and was stuck in the birth canal. At the time, John and I had no idea I was about to give birth to a baby boy. We ignored the protests of family members and decided we did not want to know the sex of our baby. Now that Logan has developed such a strong character and personality, I look back on that day and am convinced that he purposely wedged himself in me and stubbornly refused to come out! The memories of that day bring me great joy, as well as some sadness. I can hardly believe my little boy turns four today. Part of me wants him to remain a baby forever, so I can hold him and keep him safe for all eternity. The other half, my more logical side, knows this is impossible. Logan has to grow up eventually. For now, though, I’ll take great happiness in knowing he’s still my little boy. Happy birthday, Logan!
