One Year Ago, Right Now!

One year ago, right now, I was walking around the house with a towel between my legs, cussing myself for not having packed my bag for the hospital and thanking the Lord that I was too tired to make that stop by Target on my way home from work -(clean up on Alsie 5, how embarrassing would that have been?) Hubby was on his way home from the weekly poker game, that I so rudley interrupted, by calling to tell him that my water broke.

Munchkin had called a meeting! She was ready to make her debut, or so we thought. As we rushed to the hospital and got hooked up to the drugs (ahh, the drugs!!) We waited, and waited...... and waited. It was 13 hours of the family sitting there, staring at me, as if to say "aren't you going to do something?" when she finally decided to make her grand entrance. What a night, I really do remember it, just like it was yesterday. I can't believe my "baby" is turning one tomorrow.

What happened to this year?

Do they all go by this fast?

One thing that I promised myself when Munchkin was born, was that I was going to enjoy every second of her, and I have held to that. I have been careful to enjoy every stage that she was going through, never wanting to rush on to the next. Not the easiest thing to do, but I must say that I have done well. I'm so thankful for every day with this sweet little blessing, we are truly blessed to have such a beautiful, healthy baby girl.

Must go cry....

Happy birthday, (although a little late) to your little one! From our experience, years two and three go just as quickly but are even more fun than the first! Congratulations to you, C & A, on your first year of parenthood--it's quite an achievement!
