Happy Birthday Laura!

Wow! It seems like only yesterday that I was sitting in the doctor's office with an almost 4 year Katelyn at my side and looking at a calendar as the doctor said "Here are the dates I have open for the c-section." He pointed to November 10th (Katelyn's birthday), November 17th, and November 24th (Thanksgiving that year). I said there was no way I wanted to be in the hospital on a liquid diet on Thanksgiving. Then I turned to Katelyn and said "Do you want a baby sister for your birthday?" With all the innocence of a child that age she said "No, I just want toys for my birthday." So the 17th it was. After my labor/delivery experience, I didn't want to go through that again so we chose a repeat c-section. Funny thing was that Laura was stubborn from the start....the doctor, nurses and staff in the non-stress test room were all certain she'd come on her own cause she was in position and kept dropping lower and lower. However the weekend before the c-section, she went and turned herself side ways breech with no hopes of turning her and so I would have had a c-section due to that. Not to mention that she took us totally by surprise with this pregnancy anyhow......we were between homes and living with my parents briefly and going to wait til we were settled into a new place when SURPRISE I find out I'm pregnant. Taking us by surprise and stubborn from the moment of conception....that's our Laura. Never a dull moment with her around and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Happy Birthday Tiny Toons! We love you!
