The Sunday Salon: Happy Birthday JJ

Seventeen years ago, I woke up feeling not so good and thinking that perhaps baby #2 was on its way a couple of weeks early. When we got to the hospital, they said that nothing was happening really quite yet and sent us out walking to get help move things along. After only 1/2 hour or so walking around... a bookstore of course!..... I decided that things were definitely moving now! In fact, I thought that perhaps the baby could be born right there at the book store if we didn't get out of there fast!

We rushed back to the hospital and ten minutes later, JJ was born!
The above picture, one of my favorites, was taken Christmas Eve, 17 years ago.
No reading today, at least not planned. Too busy.


  1. What a great story! Glad to hear that you made it back to the hospital.

  2. Great picture, and story! Thanks for sharing Suey.

  3. Happy birthday to your son! Wouldn't that have been something--having JJ in the bookstore! LOL I'm glad you made it to the hospital in time.

  4. I'm thinking having a baby in a bookstore would be quite the adventure! My goodness! Happy Birthday to your son and look at your dedication, posting on such a busy day. :)

  5. I guess I didn't make it too clear in my post, actually not clear at all... but JJ is my daughter! :) Yep. We've had a nice calm celebration at home tonight. Tomorrow she will do some friend things. Anyway, thanks for all the birthday wishes. It's fun to think back 17 years and remember that crazy insane day.

  6. what a fabulous story!! Happy birthday to JJ
