She's 6!

My daughter turned 6 years old this week. It's hard to believe that so much time has passed since she was born. I will never forget the day that she entered this world. It was the best birth I could have possibly imagined. The day was even beautiful! It was 70 degrees and the sun was shining in December. We walked around outside that day with no coats on. My labor was relatively short for a first baby and not hard until about 2 hours before she was born. When she did grace us with her presence she was surrounded by people that loved her and were greatly anticipating her arrival. My midwife delivered her at 2:46 p.m. in the afternoon and the first thing I said was "she is so tiny." Surprisingly to me, she weighed 7 lbs 2 oz which is an average size baby!

The first night she was born she cried for hours demanding attention. She still lives her life with determination and gusto. She is very smart, helpful and dramatic. Her moods change with the wind, but we love her for who she is.

Happy Belated Birthday to my first born child!

It's kind of beautiful that if we pay attention to those little clues right off the bat that we really do get glimpses of who our kids are...

oh - and Alex was the same size - and he was too tiny for any of the clothes we brought for him.
