Today Sarah turns three-years-old.
Her delivery day marked a new beginning for me. About three months before she was due, Josh finally agreed that we could make it with me being a stay-at-home mom. It was an answer to prayer, that's for sure. And while crunching the numbers often led to discouragement, I just had to trust that we would make it because I knew it was what I was supposed to do.
It was an early morning since I was scheduled to be induced. I wasn't sure what to expect since I went into labor naturally with Caleb, but I actually liked the idea of knowing when she would arrive! Plus, I was able to wake up, take a shower, put on make-up, fix my hair, and look cute for the after delivery pictures...ha! Who thinks of that anyway? :o)
All went well, and I had my sweet baby girl almost right at noon. She weighed 8 pounds 14 ounces, and had a little round face.
Caleb meeting Sarah...
Her first birthday...
And her second birthday...
And her third...
Really, who has surgery the day before their birthday?
And every time I hear this song, I think of her and cry. Which doesn't surprise you I'm sure - the crying thing! :o)
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see
How happy she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes
Happy birthday sweet girl! I love you!
