Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Tomorrow is the first birthday of my third daughter, my fourth child... the baby of the family: Miss Anna.

It's funny because today I was telling an old friend about my birthing experience with this baby who came into the world five weeks early. I was telling her how after already giving birth to three children you would think that I am all too familiar with the signs of labor, but this one snuck up on me.

In less than five hours I went from no contractions to holding a brand new baby girl. And that's just the short version of the story.

Despite my personal stresses, difficulties, tears and loss over the past year, I have spent it watching a precious child grow. The tiny infant who weighed less than five pounds (4 lbs. 5 oz.) is a fast-walking, baby-babbling, hand-clapping, toothless-grinning bundle of joy now weighing in at 17 pounds.

Her giggles and screams fill this house. Her smile is mostly never ending. And boy does she keep me busy!

Let me be the first to say Happy Birthday Anna Banana... mommy's "Moo Moo." You are really loved!
