12 years ago...

12 years ago on this date, I was very pregnant and I still had 3 weeks left to go before I would meet my baby girl. Something I had always dreamed about my entire life... I always wanted to be a momma and of course be a momma to a little girl. All my dreams were coming true in just 3 short weeks (I am pretty sure at this time, it seemed like so far to go...)

Well... this little girl decided to come 3 weeks early. March 6th, 2008 I went in for my weekly doctor's appointment. (Her due date was March 24th.) The doctor did her exam and when doing it, she popped my water bag. Her reply was, I believe I popped your water bag... she checked and YEP, I was going to be holding my baby girl, sooner than we expected. 

I went to the bathroom to get cleaned up and when I got back they had a wheel chair waiting for me and her dad wheeled me over to the hospital where we would be staying until we would leave with her... We got to my room and then I called my best friend Jenn, who would be coming to meet us and then called my parents. I didn't stay on the phone too long because the nurses needed me to fill out our paper work. 

I got all settled in and then we had a few visitors. My mom changed her flight and she would be here at 6 pm on March 7th. Around 12:30 pm on March 7th, I started pushing. 2 hours later she was stuck and the doctor was ready to get her out so everyone got prepared for a c-section. At this point, I just wanted her out because I was super worried. At 3:37 my baby girl was delivered and I was in complete love and awe. She was mine and would forever be my baby girl. 

And from her birth, she has been living her life on her terms. She is a strong willed and very stubborn kiddo and I could not be more proud of her. I mean, she did get her stubbornness honestly... She is beautiful and she has a HEART of gold. She is going to do great things in her life and I can't wait to watch all her dreams come true.

I am extremely blessed and proud of this girl!

Happy soon to be birthday to my almost 12 year old... May this year be filled with many blessings and so much love...
