Eleven years ago today, I was packing up the last things I thought I would need at the hospital. Playing cards? check. Portable CD player with relaxing CD's? check (obviously, the pre-Ipod era). Warm socks? check. Books for Mike? check. Calling card to use from hospital phone? check (nope, didn't have cell phones then either).
At just about this time (7:15 am) we looked around the house, knowing that when we came back to it our lives would never be the same. And boy was that right!
Charles Donald Pohl was born at 8:57 pm on Tuesday, Oct. 7th, 1997. (yes, it was a VERY LONG DAY). He weighed 8 lbs. 13 oz, was 21" long, and was the most beautiful baby ever born.
(Aren't they all?)
We started celebrating this weekend (as he wanted one of Deb's Chocolate Cream Pies, and she was leaving town!)
Happy Birthday Charlie! We are so blessed.
