It was June 3rd 2001 at 12:25 pm in South Lake Tahoe... our 1st little guy was born- I fell in love with him before I even met him- Months before he was born I felt his first kick - as a first time pregnant woman, I was tripped out! I had read all the books, chapter after chapter about that first kick- some compare it to a butterflies, I thought there was no explaining it with words-
I realized at that moment... my life would be changed forever- yes I knew when I found out I was pregnant my life would be different but it didn't sink in till I felt him- After that he kicked so much I couldn't remember how it felt to NOT be kicked from the inside- He moved so much he was like an alien and he was going to just break thru my belly one day!
Fortunately my sister had a son the year before... So she assured me he would not come out that way;) I was so nervous and anxious about meeting him- I ended up getting induce on June 2nd - two weeks before my due day date- and on june 3rd after 11 hours of labor with my mom Cindi, sister Nicole and sister in- law Heather supporting me and Jeremy, Treyton Empire Young joined our little family- I remember right after I delivered him I started crying and I looked up at my mom and said I don't know why I am crying I am so happy! she looked at me and said... of course you are crying... you're crying CUZ you are happy- It was strange I guess I had never had a reason to feel that way before-
so much has happened since that day, but I remember it like it was yesterday- I was so scared and excited to be a new mom, he was my world- Even at 20 years old I knew then being a mom was the reason I was put on this earth- It wasn't always easy, So Jeremy got great at giving me breaks after he worked all day - Waking up with Treyton when he was crying - He would stay up with him for hours humming on his belly till he fell asleep- then getting up for work two hours later- all just so I could get some rest! Treyton liked sleeping during the day and not at night! Eventually he figured it out and gave us a sleep filled night..maybe two years later!
Treyton was an amazing baby and is now and amazing kid- Jeremy and I are so proud of the person he has become - I could go on and on with stories about Trey... but I will just say Happy birthday to a wonderful little boy who has the world at his finger tips- I see nothing but great things in your future- We love you!
