Well, I can't believe I'm the mother of a two year old... It's sort of unreal. Dallin's Two Year Birthday was yesterday, April 2nd. Where did that time go? I know all of you mothers can relate. I really didn't think time went that fast until Dallin came along.
Two years ago, I called my mom on April Fools, and told I was going into labor. Of course it was a joke... After that, I went to Lady's Night at Deseret Book and stood the whole two hours. By the end of the night I was SOO swollen and puffy, and my ankles were the same size as my knees. I went back to my mother in law's house (we were there for conference), and made a Shrimp dinner. Finally, Jeff and I got to bed at 1:00, and I woke up an hour later with contractions. Unfortunately, I didn't really know what was happening. I still had a month to go with the pregnancy, and I thought this is what they called "Braxton Hicks". But no... It was time... We drove down to St. George at 8:00 and was told I had Toxemia, so they were going to keep me. Right after that, my water broke, so I definately knew I was stuck there. I had to call my mom and tell her that I definitely wasn't "April Fool-sing" this time. Our little Dallin came 14 hours later (Sheesh!) at 11:07 at night. He came in at 5 lbs even- He was so tiny! But beautiful. And Perfectly healthy (besides Jaundice a few days later). Like I said- It definitely doesn't feel like two years have passed!
