Last Day of Being "Zero"

One year ago today Sylas and I looked like this:

The day prior, Brett and I had flown over to Oahu and planned to stay until I gave birth. Sylas' due date was 2 weeks away. This was a VERY active day, and I probably walked a few miles. I don't know what I was thinking, but I sure was excited to actually have stores (like Target) to shop at, and we had yet to find a car seat that would fit our stroller. We ended the day with an stomach-stretching Italian dinner, and I had to stop and breath through a contraction on the way back to our hotel. I didn't think much of it, since I thought it was probably just another one of those annoying Braxton Hicks. Well, no I was in labor.

A few hours later I went to sleep...a few hours later I woke up with most definite labor pains...waited way too long for a taxi....finally arrived at the hospital but nurses acted way too relaxed and wanted me to fill something out, weigh me, probably measure my height!!...that all changed when they realized I was 8cm dilated!

I will say no more, since it is not his birthday yet.
We took pictures today to commemorate, as Sophie says "Sylas' last day of being zero".
