It was wonderful to get around to many of your blogs, to catch up a bit and to hear from some of you! And I do hope to start posting some of the cruise pictures soon but, today, I had to take a break from those memories to look back 22 years….
Yep, that’s me – 22 years ago today!! I was on my way to a “routine” doctor’s visit….but, little did I know, I was hours away from becoming a mommy!!
I had been on bedrest for weeks with pre-term labor and was thrilled to simply be up, dressed and out of the house. I think that is probably the reason for the picture. Apparently, all that up and off the couch started the labor….again. This time there was no stopping her!
Miss Emily was on her way….and September 28th – I became a mommy for the first time! I’ve spent this morning remembering that moment and even now there really is no way to describe how you feel!
She was five weeks early and just a tiny little thing – weighed in at 5 pounds 2ounces – but she was healthy and strong..never really needed much more than the warming. This picture was taken the next morning and was the first time I was able to hold her. Yes, I was melting with mama’s pride!!
