Happy Birthday C-BUG!

Today Cbug turned 11! I know it is so clichesque to say that time is really going so fast - BUT I IS! IT feels like just yesterday AND eons ago as well - that I was taking little tiny A to gymnastics on a December morning and timing contractions thinking that today could be the day! All of the sudden I realized that I had better get some Christmas shopping done after gymnastics because if this was the day then I was hosed - I knew that as soon as the sweet little CBUG made her appearance - I would NOT be thinking much about buying presents! So, off little A and I went to the mall - still timing mind you and calling Brent every few minutes to tell him they were still going strong! You see - there were still 5 days left before her due date! After I got most of what I wanted to get done at the mall - I made a final quick phone call to Brent and told him to meet me at home - where I wanted to clean for a while before we headed to see the doc!

Once we got to the drs - they made us wait in the waiting room for 2 hours!!!! You see, I didn't feel any pain JUST contractions! So the stinkin nurses didn't think I was in labor - Brent whispered in my ear to make faces like I was hurting so they would take me seriously! They finally got me back in a room about 4ish and as we were heading back the nurse looked at me and told me NO WAY was I in labor - sure enough CBug was born at 6:14PM - less than 2 1/2 hours later!

She has such a sweet heart for others and has brightened up my life! I am so thankful that God chose her to belong to our family! My prayer for her is that she will always have a strong connection with God and that He will use her mightily!

Happy Bday - SWEETIE!

(we had another dance party that involved the wave, balloon baseball, ice cream cake - thanks to Erin - lots of loud screaming, and of course DANCING!) I took lots of pictures but I am still in the same place with being able to upload them - I thought I had worked that out BUT not so much! maybe you can check here and here for pictures from tonight's festivities!
