A Year Ago!

This is where I was exactly a year from today!  I can't believe how fast this year has gone by.  It has been a VERY emotional year and sometimes I just don't have the words to describe everything that has happened!

Second trip to Labor & Delivery

Writing a love letter to my wonderful husband who was in Iraq

Just sitting around waiting . . and waiting . . and waiting!

Most of the next few days of my life are still a blur to me, trying to remain calm knowing that my husband wasn't going to be home for the birth of our first daughter, not knowing if she was going to take that first breath when she arrived and scared out of my mind about actually giving birth!  I felt awesome except for the fact that my knees were bruised from all of my talks with God.  I knelt my our bed so many times asking him for a settled heart, knowing that he was in complete control over EVERYTHING . . and then we all sat on the edge of our seats for the next week!

Being a Mother has changed me so much, and I have never felt love like this in my life and I am so excited to watch our little one grow!

It is so encouraging to hear your story and see how great your daughter has done with this condition. I hope and pray that my daughter will have the same experience. We will see soon! I am 38 weeks today, so we are just waiting to meet her.
