The Best and Worst Presents Ever

Today 33 years ago I was born. Today 4 years ago Sweet Girl was born. Yep we share the day! She was the best birthday present ever and no one will ever be able to top it that's for sure. Although honestly I was not thrilled with her being born on my birthday, now I don't mind so much.

She was born at 5:20 PM and weighed in at 8 lbs 5.5 oz and she was fat and chunky and just perfect. She was a highly efficient eater and breastfed like a champ finishing in under 10 minutes usually.

Now she is 4 and a growing girl who can carry on a good conversation. She makes awesome faces (yes something she gets from me) and says funny things. She's also highly dramatic and while it drives me batty most of the time it is really something I don't think I can change. I can't sit here and type everything I would like that has happened over the last four years because it would take forever and because I would cry which makes typing kind of difficult.

We got lucky and got pregnant with her the first month we tried. And I loved being pregnant even though my feet looked like hobbit feet (minus the hair...) because they were so swollen. I was also on bed rest the last 2 months. But obviously it was worth it.

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!! Thank you for bringing fun and excitement into our life. I love being with you when you experience new things. I love you, Sweet Girl.

I did intend to include my worst present ever but I don't think I can tarnish this post with that since it really should be all about Sweet Girl. I'll give you just a hint...I actually found out about it last night...
