Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

Seven years ago, at this very moment, I was giving birth to my little guy.  Daniel tried to talk me into holding out for a 3:00 pm birth to go along with my 03-03-03 motif.  I was not amused.  Of course, like he's come to show, Nemmett's birth was an indication of how he was going to be.  It started out, us starting labor via the pit-drip, like I have always had to do, forcing the kid along.  Of course, once it started, he took over and decided to come at his own, quick pace.  Just like getting him up in the morning...it is pulling teeth, until he decides he is ready, and bam, he is ready to go.

This morning while I was in the living room, I heard Daniel retell the story of our son's birth.  I had to smile when he told Nigel that Mommy was really unsure of having a boy, but it only took one look for me to fall in love.

I am amazed at how fast the time has flown.  Many people have told me to treasure these years because they fly away too fast.  I am wont to agree.  Wasn't it yesterday that he was smiling at me with his big toothless grin, milk dripping down his chin while I nursed him?  I think that his milestones come and go at a faster clip than those of his older sister.  Partly because I've experienced them before, partly because I dread the fact I won't experience them again.

I've enjoyed the journey so far, and can't wait to see what is next with this little man.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
