Picking Peas on July 22

Just before dark tonight my mom, Robert and I picked peas.  And while I'm super excited about that, at one time I stood up and thought this is exactly what mom and I were doing exactly two years ago this night.  Which might seem strange for me to remember unless you know that tomorrow is Monster Milan's second birthday and I very distinctly remember picking peas until dark a mere five hours before Milan sent me to the hospital a few weeks earlier than expected.  While my mother-in-law was convinced I was going to have that child in the field and it went easy enough that I'm convinced I could have had that child in the field, we did make it to the hospital and nothing's been the same since.  It's hard to believe it's been two years and I can't imagine what we ever did without him.  Here's my baby the day we brought him home...
