It was a cool and breezy morning as we sat outside on the patio of our favorite local diner. My belly was full, literally. Pancakes, eggs, sausage, a mocha/vanilla ice blended, and a nearly ten pound baby boy. It was our last meal together as a childless couple, and we couldn't be more excited. We finished our food, and headed to the hospital for my 9am induction. As we drove, we talked about the events to come with anticipation and excitement. James snapped one last picture of my belly before we entered the hospital, and 34 exhilerating hours later Emerick was born!
