21 years ago... June 7, 1995

21 years ago I went to the hospital ready to have my first baby. It was early Wednesday morning, June 7, 1995. I was 18 years old and I had no idea what I was getting myself into!

However that stubborn, big headed, brat of a baby decided to take his sweet damn time to make an appearance. It was getting close to 36 hours since I had eaten. I had been hooked up to pitocin for almost 20 hours. The epidural numbed me from my chest toy toes. I was yelling at the doctors and staff to just cut me open!

Finally at 3:26 am on Thursday, June 8th, 1995 my son Christian Anthony Mora was born.  He weighed 9lb 7oz. I was the youngest mom in the OB ward and I had the biggest baby.

My life has never been the same.  The twins are getting my second go at raising boys alone. Hopefully I have learned from any mistakes that I made the first time. 

Christian, I love you so much! 

I can't believe you are turning 21. I hope I did right by you.

Thank GOD I don't look my age! See, God has made me into a #fatgirl to keep the wrinkles away. It helps me look younger than my 39 (and almost 1/2) years.

Christian is happily married to his junior high sweetheart, Brooke. They met in youth group. They have been married for almost 3 years. I am so proud of the man he has become.

Happy Birthday Christian!
