They Say the Second one comes faster

Can this be true? Labor that only lasted 35 minutes? Here i was sitting in my bathroom with my newborn son in my own hands amazed that i gave birth to this wonderful creature by myself. Did this really just happen? One phone call was all i got damn cell battery and no house phone. Stuck on the bathroom floor in pain I took a second to pause and said - are you ready for this journey little one? It is just you and I. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way!
