My sweet baby girl is 11 years old today! How time flies. It seems like just yesterday she was born. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and I was 3 cm and he decided he would induce me the next morning. I had so much to do that night and thought the stomach cramps were just my nerves but when I got to the hospital I found out I had been contracting. When we woke up the next morning Joe took one last picture of me pregnant and we were off. I remember when I came out of the bathroom after changing into my gown Joe was pacing the floor he was so nervous. The rest of the morning went well. I did have the nurse give me a dose of Stadol that made me laugh and laugh and laugh! I could not even look at the nurse with out laughing! Gami and Gramps were even laughing at me. After a short time of pushing she was born at 1:13pm weighing 7lbs 3oz. She was such a beautiful baby and has now grown into such a beautiful young lady. She is so smart and funny. I can't even begin to tell you how proud I am of her. She has such a big heart and feisty spirit. The day she was born is one of the best days of my life!! I am honored to be her mother! XOXO

So I am going to try this again!

So I am going to try the whole blogging thing again. I didn't do so great the first time around so I am hoping I do better this time! Summer was very busy for us and I am finally adjusted to the kids being back in school. Landon is in school 3 days a week this year so I decided to start working up at the shop one day a week. I am also helping coach Alyssa's cheerleading squad this year. Dear Lord help me! I try to have patience but some of those girls attitude can really test you! I just don't remember being so disrespectful at that age or ever for that matter! Well I am going to go for now. Mercedes had Addison last week and I have been sick so I have not gotten to hold her and I am feeling better so I can't wait to swaddle the baby!
