Happy Birthday baby Social

My anniversary of giving birth to my baby girl!  The first year is done and gone!  WHOA! I can’t believe it; Where is my baby?!

_MG_9839a FINALCool things about her birth story:

1. My due date was the same day at her granddad’s birthday 10/16.

2. I was induced.

3. I was already having contractions when I got there.

4. I decided to be induced on 10/15 because the doctor that delivered my son was at the hospital.

5. The doctor that I worked to schedule almost didn’t make it there in time, I would have had the midwife on call deliver her.

6. I think I only had to push 2-3 times, unlike my first child which was 2 hours.

7. I finally had a 7 pound baby! (first was 9 lbs and I thought; i.e. wished he was 7 lbs)

8.  My hospital stay was like a vacation! Those nurses were awesome!!!

9. I lied to my husband when he would call and ask if I got out of bed and walked around…I would say yes; I had to walk to the bathroom!

10.  How deep a connection we have as mother and daughter.
