Alex turns 3 tomorrow??

Is it possible?  3 years ago at this time I was enduring labor pains.  I had been dealing with painful contractions every twenty minutes since around 1am and had convinced myself I was in false labor.  I was frustrated because I couldn't get any decent sleep yet worried that these painful contractions weren't doing anything helpful.  Luckily, they did pick up in intensity and got closer together.  I was on the phone with my mom and she convinced me that it was probably time to head to the hospital.  But Biju wasn't home.  He had taken Ajay to pick up some dinner.  Mom called him and told him to come home and get me while I called my sister to come over, get Ajay put to bed and to sleep on our couch.  We got to the hospital around 8:30/9pm and Alex arrived at 1:21am.

A couple of weeks before Alex was born.

All snuggly and warm.
