He was born on September 15, 2009 at 1:14pm - after 26 hours of labor. I would do it again in a second! No question. Niko wasn't born as healthy as I expected. Six minutes after birth they discovered a problem with his breathing. He had pneumothorax (little holes in the lungs, partially collapsed lungs) and a cyst on his little brain.
Leaving him in the hospital alone was truly the single most difficult thing I ever experienced. By the graces of God, he came home perfect and healthy one week later! No surgery needed.
Now here we are, two years later! I pray I'm on this Earth long enough to have another 60 or 70 years with him. Happy Birthday, my baby boy!! Momma loves you forever!
