Happy 3rd birthday David!!

Happy 3rd birthday David!!, originally uploaded by jessicafm.

3 years ago today, we were at Marin General Hospital in the pre-dawn hours, ready to become a family of 3. I remember looking out the window at the gibbous harvest moon hanging low over Mount Tamalpais and humming Neil Young to myself. Later, prone on the bed, hooked up a fetal heart rate monitor and a drip of pitocin, the Blue Angles roared nearby, doing their Fleet Week performance. Then, at 4 o'clock on the dot, Davey was plucked from my belly and Mark cut the umbilical cord. Life hasn't been the same ever since and I can't imagine it any other way.

Happy birthday my little love!
