Happy Birthday to my Baby!
On July 5th 2007, I went from looking like this: To holding this: I was one of those girls who played house and babies and all that. I always wanted to be a mom. Now, one year after I became one, I feel like I'm fulfilling my destiny. I'm almost embarrassed to say that my labour was really short. It feels like I'm bragging when I mention that to women who have had longer or harder labours. I was 7 cm dilated at my doctor's appointment with no contractions. My doctor panicked and told me to get to the hospital right away because the baby was going to fall out. We arrived at the hospital at 11 am, and my water didn't break (and I felt no pain at all) until 5pm. Then the pain began! JK was born at 7pm or so. One of JK's smiles or hugs is worth every second of pain or discomfort or lack of sleep over the past 1 year and 9 months. I love this little girl with all my heart.
