9 yrs ago today

When I found out that I was pregnant for the second time, The Boy was not quite 3 months old. I thought I was going to die. I could not believe it...especially since a mere 13 months prior to this, I'd been told I could not get pregnant! Guess I showed THEM!

Once I was able to wrap my brain around the fact that I was, indeed, pregnant with our second child, I tried to embrace it. Actually, I tried to not be sick, but that is another issue and it was a good, long while before I could function properly without fear of vomiting everywhere! When I was no longer sick, I became excited about the prospect of another baby. I wanted a girl but I knew from the start that I was carrying another boy. I never asked the ultrasound tech - The Husband and I had decided not to find out (with either child). We both had a gut feeling that this was going to be another boy. At first, I was upset but I came to terms with it. I even told The Husband to be patient with me as I knew when this child was born I'd be disappointed in his being a boy when I really wanted a girl. The Husband was quite supportive.

The big day arrived. What a shock to learn that The Baby was, in fact, a girl! I was elated. There aren't words to describe the joy I felt that I had given birth to a daughter. Sometimes I forget how happy I was in that instant. I should try to remember more often. She truly is an amazing girl and I admire how she carries herself. I am now and will always be proud to be her mom.


  1. We should all try to remember that moment of joy. It could save so many kids (mine) from an hours worth of screaming (reminding) on the ride home form Nashville after a fun filled (agonizing) trip to the Big Mall on a Saturday afternoon. Happy Birthday Girl Child from Bunny and his Female Parental Unit. We miss you.

  2. Happy Be-lated Birthday to the Girl!
