(I am sorry it has taken so long to get back here--we've been busy with....well....life. And before I share our big news I have to pause because...)
Today, we celebrate Emily's 12th birthday!
Twelve years ago I was lying in the hospital eager to hear the nurse's report each time she checked on me.
Waiting for your first child to be born is a feeling like no other.
(I'm not even talking about labor pains!)
Thanks to an epidural and being dialated to 4 cm when I arrived at the hospital, Emily came rather easily.
Good thing because Jeremy was pretty much useless.
I lost him when he watched the epidural needle get placed in my back.
Poor guy--the nurses attended to him more than me!
Twelve years ago, we became parents.
Jeremy prayed for a beautiful daughter that we would call Emily.
He picked her first name.
If he or his brother had been girls, Emily was the name his parents had picked out.
I picked Noel for her middle name.
I love Christmas!
Happy Birthday, Emily!
