Happy Birthday, Colton!

Colton turns 5 today! I cannot believe he's already 5 years old. It really seems like we were just getting ready for him to enter this world. This big boy is my first, my oldest. And he will always hold that special place. He is so sweet and compassionate, and a little dramatic. There are so many things that I can write about him. I just love him so much. He made me a mommy. Just a little on his entrance to the world: My water broke the morning of the 18th when I rolled over in bed. Or should I say started leaking. They admitted me around 10:00am and started the awful pitocin. I decided to hold off on the epidural and regretted that. I started pushing around 4:00pm, learned how to properly push at 4:30pm and he came out, crying at 5:14pm. Labor was tough as it was all back labor and my epidural wasn't put in until I was at 8cm. But every moment was well worth it. So here are a few pictures to share of Colton: Taking a break from walking the halls to call Willy's mom to let her know Colton was on his way. I was HUGE with him, he weighed a whopping 9lbs 7oz!!
Our very first family picture. I swear he never looked like a newborn. He came out half-grown.

Colton and his bear Winchester. Once he quit crying, he smiled all the time!

His first Thanksgiving. I just really love this picture.

His 5th birthday party (another post about that this week). I can't believe how much he has grown and changed!

I love you little man!
