“It’s hard to say. It could be many things, but not something to ignore. I’m going to have to act proactively on this one. Don’t worry. I’m sure everything will be fine”
“Anything you say. You know best. This could be it though? It’s no turning back for me from here on you know. The time is now”

8:02 a.m. – CDJR1 was born … not many cries, I was wondering if he was ok. They put his face against mine. He had a head of hair. He started to cry. He was ok. I started to cry.

“Happy Birthday CDJR1. Mommy loves you”
