Augustine is 7!
and right on the heels of his sister's 5th birthday, augustine turned 7 yesterday! it is amazing to me that so many little nuances of my life go by and my brain just files away the details until they become almost like they happened to someone else and yet birthing my children i remember with amazing, vivid detail. i remember my water sprung a leak right on the midwifes table before an examination. i was mortified, thinking i had peed a little and ran out of the room to go to the bathroom and compose myself. but a little litmus test later my jaw dropped realizing shiz just got real and i was about to me a mother. david and i nervously walked around my parents house and i found 14 four leaf clovers. we sat in total silence watching ray trying to distract ourselves from the "deadline" of when we had to return to the hospital (10 pm). bags packed i said goodbye to my parents and we shuffled into the night and to the hospital. the next day at 4:14 PM out came a screaming little boy.
he rang in his birthday the same way i did my 30th, with a breakfast at Jack & Benny's.
