A Day That Will Live In Infamy

Happy due date, Jack. For months I've wondered what today would be like. Babies rarely arrive on their due dates. I didn't know if you'd be early, on time, or over due. Would I already be a mom by today? Would I be hugely pregnant, and uncomfortable, and anxious, and freaked out by today? Would you actually arrive today?

I had no idea you'd decide to come into the world almost 7 weeks early and that by today we'd already be used to each other and settled into a routine. I didn't expect to already be an expert at changing diapers or to already know how to calm you down when you get fussy.

You've reached a milestone today, Jack. I'm so glad you're here and healthy. I don't know what I'd do without you. I love you.
