Happy birthday Princess...

Six years ago today, I was lounging around in the hospital waiting patiently for my darling girl to make her appearance...

Don't buy that?  Me neither...  I started the day at about 4:00 in the morning taking a shower before heading over to the hospital. I laid around in the hospital bed having to ask a nurse every 15 minutes to unhook me from everything so I could go to the bathroom. I finally gave up around 9:00 and asked for the epidural and the catheter.  Then I got some rest.  The pushing started about 6:00 and at exactly 6:45 p.m. my sweet baby was born.

Since then there has been many smiles, laughs, giggles, tears, shouting and teeth grinding, but I wouldn't trade a minute of it nor a second or millisecond (I think you get my point) to not have every moment I can have with her.  Too soon she will be waving goodbye as she heads off to start her own life and I hope, really hope that she will look back on her childhood and remember how great it was to be together.


  1. This is so special. I can feel so much love in this post :). Happy Birthday to your little sweetheart ;)

  2. Oh Happy Birthday little miss! It goes way to fast. Enjoy it while she is little. I look at my almost 18 year old and it blows my mind that she will soon be considered an adult. Not ready for that.

  3. Beautiful post. I can feel the love! Happy Birthday to your Princess!

  4. I'm so behind on your posts! But I'm glad we got to celebrate her birthday on Sunday. Peanut had a great time. Thank you.
