Birthday Boy!!! Tuesday, June 12, 2007

I cannot believe he has been with us 9 years. It all started on a Tuesday night and I was doing a Uni Exam. I couldn't sit still just couldn't get comfortable and couldn't wait to finish the darn exam. That morning I woke up and heard a pop and my waters broke. I rang my dr and he said no hurry just come in when you are ready. So I had a shower put a load of washing on and then went to hospital at lunch time. I can't believe I was so relaxed. Yeah just off to have a baby :) I'll save you from all the painful details but at 9.15 that night Tim came into our world. He wasn't breathing real well so they rang the dr. Then they placed him on my chest. I didn't want him I just said I just want him to be ok take him and get him breathing. I'm not happy that they put me through that. I was so worried I just wanted them to take him away and get him breathing and right. It wasn't my time it was his time. Then they said he was fine but still got the dr and then put him in the Nursery in a humidi crib for observation. They fixed me all up and then I got to see him about midnight. Back then I stayed in hospital for 5 days which was way too long. I was so happy to get home. Tim was a great baby he just slept and ate. And then he grew up :)

Tim has wanted a new motorbike for a while now. We said no as we just couldn't afford to go and buy a new bike. All his friends had big bikes and he used to try and keep up with his little 50cc. We said he was actually lucky he had that .... (mean parents are we). He decided that he wanted to race motocross and we said if he could save up $1000 we would put in the rest. But then a friend was selling his son's bike so we decided that as Tim had put in so much effort in saving we would buy him this one for his Birthday. It was such a big secret and no-one knew. We didn't want anyone accidently telling him.

We had our family over and we all walked up the garage and Tim walked out to a bike under a blanket. He couldn't believe it he was shocked! I know don't think he is good with surprises. I thought he would jump around screaming but he was so shocked he just stood there. But he was on it within 2 minutes and now I am wondering what have we done. Mark was explaining some powerband thing and he was gong fast and oh shit what have we done.

Mark took some video of Tim and his friend Oscar riding the day after Tim got his new bike. I am thinking he is going too fast but I wasn't home to stop them. I've uploaded it to Youtube. It is a big file so you are best off letting it run and it will stop and start but if you watch it a second time it will run the whole way through.

Love Mum xx
