Happy Birthday my little love. He said hello to this world 4 years ago. He is my honeymoon baby. We knew right away that we wanted to have a little one. After being married for 15 days, I took a pregnancy test just for kicks, it came back negative. Oh, I was sad, I was very sad, I remember watching the movie Tarzan (the disney version) one evening when Sam was at work, and I remember having tears streaming down my face. I wanted a little baby of my own soooo badly. I really thought that I wouldn't be gifted with the joy of motherhood, then a week later, I was feeling out place and disoriented and I thought to myself, heck, I am going to take a test again. The line was pink! I was going to have a little one of my own! I rushed out of the bathroom, jumped over our bed to tell Sam the great news. We were psyched and overjoyed beyong words.
Bryant was born on one of the biggest snowstorms that hit Utah in 2002. Everything was closed on Sunday and Monday due to the snowstorm--which allowed Sam to be with us at the hospital. Coming home, the roads were so packed with snow that we had to park our car about a block away from our apartment--then we had to climb up the biggest hill by USU campus! As Sam carried the baby in the car seat, I waddled through the snow trying to get to our cozy little studio. Getting Bryant home was the most exciting and yet terrifying experience we have both ever encountered. We were home with a new baby--what in heck were we supposed to do? Breast feeding--what was that? how do you do it? Baby awake every 2 hours-- why? Why couldn't he sleep like the rest of the world? Changing diapers a whole new experience for me--even when I didn't change the diapers I ended up being squirted! Little stinker--it seemed that he was just waiting for me to come and see and then he will just turn into a little water fountain--let me tell you, it doesn't taste sweet like all the doctors say! Soon, we realized that the hospital handed us a baby but they forgot to give us the manual and his checkbook!
