8 years ago today I went in for my regularly scheduled weekly doctor's visit.
My E.D.D (estimated date of delivery) was the next day and I was anxious to see if any of the "remedies" I had tested proved fruitful.
Not too mention the Braxton Hicks were driving me up a wall.
Get to the doctor's office and nothin.
Like negative nothing. Barely dilated and so ready to get this show on the road
( I was rather impatient to meet my Sweet Pea at this point)
Due to a non-impressive heart rate and the lack of major movement I was scheduled to be induced.
I was admitted to the hospital after notifying friends and family, anxious to meet our baby.
After 1.5 hours of labor w/ no progress and a declining fetal heart rate - they went ahead with a C-section.
And thusly at 2:14 a.m. on March 14th, 2002 my Sweet Pea came into the world and changed my life forever.
To My Sweet Pea Angel,
Happy Birthday Puddinl!!
I can't believe you are 8 years old! It seems like yesterday we were driving to the hospital and suddenly you were placed in my arms! What a sweet little pea you were!
These last few years have flown by!
I am so proud of the girl you are becoming and can't wait to see young woman you grow into!
You are such a creative being! I am always amazed at how well you can re-create what you see on TV and in your head! Your imagination is such a wonderful gift and you crack us up with your stories and ideas!
This year you have grown so much! Beginning the Second grade, winning several awards, becoming more proficient in your reading and how you express yourself overall!
You truly are the light of our lives and we couldn't imagine our world without you!
What a blessing you have been to the entire family!
Mommy and Daddy love you so much and thank God for you everyday.
My cup runneth over.
