Birthday Girl

Four years ago on this date I went in for my twice weekly ( I know...it sucked!) checkup with my OB. I was as swollen as a tick and my blood pressure was no longer being controlled with the 3 medications they had me on and we were pretty much at the maximum dosages allowed. Today would be the day. I would get to meet my longed for girl. She would come at 36 weeks, ready or not. Thankfully she was ready. She came out of me with a cry that said "Hey, I'm no wallflower, I'm here world!" She was perfect...she was healthy...she was a peanut. When I look at my sassy girl today, with her wild riotous curls and long legs, I can't believe she's the same 4lb 12oz. creature I brought home. As much as she amuses and mystifies me daily (I mean really, why does she change clothes 3 or 4 times a day and what's with those overalls she loves?), she also makes my heart sing. I've never seen a more beautiful smile or eyes that sparkle quite as much. Whether she's dive bombing the couch with her brothers, sitting on my lap to "help" me sew or just cuddling in the bed with me, she leaves me in awe of what an amazing gift she is to our family. So, Happy Birthday baby girl, we love you!
