On this date...

Four years ago today, I was hoping for the weather to clear so Eric could fly back to Kodiak.

Four years ago today, I was lucky enough to have my mom and dad by my side.

Four years ago today, I needed all of Laura's sarcasm I could get to take my mind off the pain.

Four years ago today, I was hopped up on morphine. It wasn't really helping.

Four years ago today, I was not so patiently waiting for the anesthesiologist to finish up with a 12 year old boy who needed his jaw surgically repaired.

Four years ago today, I was being wheeled down to the OR just as Eric arrived at the hospital.

And four years ago today, I had a beautiful daughter.

Happy Birthday, baby girl!

Ah, I almost forgot about all that trauma/drama! That little sweetie has tested you since day 1! She sure is worth it though! Happy Birthday, Megan!

Happy Birthday Megan! My due date for BOTH kids was Jan 21....only 4 years apart. Madison never wanted to come out and was born Feb 1. I MADE them induce me early with Joshua so I wouldn't have a repeat birth experience and Joshua was born Jan 7th!
