9 years ago

9 years ago, just about now, I was holding this newborn baby girl in my arms. She was born at 10:45 p.m., just a little over an hour after we arrived at the hospital! I wasn't sure I was really in labor as I had never gone into labor naturally before. Hard to believe 9 years have gone by. We had a lovely day. Mostly we hung around home and took it easy. Late afternoon we went out to the country and picked apples. The day ended with me telling her the story of the day she was born as I tucked her in. She was such a sweet surprise for my 40th birthday. She was born almost exactly one month before I turned 40. Guess I'm giving my age away aren't I?

No matter when they come along they are an awesome blessing! Even on the days when we have to lock ourselves in the bathroom so as not to chase the blessing around the house to string them up by their ears.
