Happy Birthday!!!

Today we are celebrating my son's fourth birthday!!! I can't believe how old he is! I remember how much my hubby and I wanted a child of our own. We tried for exactly 11 month before God blessed us with him.

I had a pretty easy pregnancy. I was nauseous most of the time, but only got sick on Sundays for some weird reason. I lost weight at the beginning since I was eating really healthy, but I gained quite a bit at the end of my pregnancy since I wasn't working by then.

My son was definitely comfortable right where he was. When he was a week late, the doctor gave me the option of a Csec or a long natural birth that would probably led to a Csec (since I'm shaped funny). So, I opted for the Csec...which I guess was an answer to prayer! I always prayed for a quick, easy, and painless birth, but I guess I should have been more specific!!

So, my doctor gave me a couple of dates to choose from for my Csec. I was really neat to pick out my son's birthday-March 1st!

So 10 days late and an epidural later, my son was born! I remember hearing him crying till my husband held him. As he talked, our son settled down immediately! He def knew the sound of his daddy's voice!

I feel so blessed to have my son in my life! He amazes me everyday with the new things that he has learned. So, happy fourth birthday sweetie!!! Your momma loves ya babydoll!!!

(Btw, thanks for all your great advice yesterday! I really appreciate it and I will be sure to remember it the next time I get a rude comment!)

Incidentally, I was thinking. I have two nephews and one niece (your son being one of those, of course). How would one collectively refer to them? You know, we have the gender neutral children, grandchildren, parents, etc, but I always hear "nieces and nephews".

Is there a collective, gender neutral word for them?

Nope. That whole relationship branch is just the red-headded stepchild of the family tree, I guess.

(No offense to your redheads!)

You can say my sister's kids...or my borther's kids. Or the littles, munchkins, the brats..... SO on and so on! Just trying to help!!

But, I have a nephew from Trin and a niece and a nephew from my brother. If I say my brother-in-law's kids and brother's kids, that is longer than nieces and nephews. And brats could mean my kids too (since I call them my brats, anyway).

It isn't that I'm vocally lazy and mind the extra syllables, I was just wondering linguistically.
