I have been meaning to do an entry for a bit now lol. I had planned to try to do one once a week, but with the holidays and my daughter's birthday to prepare for I have been kind of swamped here at home. Ok this post about two of my favorite memories ( I do have other favorite memories, but this is the time of year for these two).
Five years ago on Dec 12 I had one of the scariest as well as one of the most amazing days of my life. This was the day I gave birth to my beautiful daughter. The reason it was the scariest is that up until then I had never had a surgery in my life, and here I was having a C-section. I remember laughing when I told a nurse when I do things for the first time I go all out. I was too scared to be put under, plus I wanted to see my baby when they got her out, so I opted for the spinal block. I felt no pain but could feel pressure when they cut or moved things, and at one point I swear they were playing tug of war with me. When my other half held our daughter on my chest, so I could see her before she went to be weighed, I cried. She was a tiny little thing only 5lbs 14.5 ozs 18.5 inches long, now though she's just big (I don't mean this in a bad way just that she's taller than most kids her age). That was the best day of my life.
Now then about 3 years ago was the second best day of my life. That was the day that I found out that my daughter was negative. I literally was jumping up and down as I told everyone her results. So from then on her birthday became a double celebration. This picture is of my daughter eating her cake on her birthday.
