6 years ago...

I was fat, unhappy and praying that I would go into labor at any given time. I was only 1 day passed my due date, but that 1 day was 1 day too many for me. I was soooo sick with her. I was still puking off and on even in the last week of pregnancy. I would do alright for a while, and then for any given reason, I would lose it again. One of my favorite stories is the time when I was waiting for Nathan to get off work we were going to go have dinner. I was hungry while I was at the house, so I was eating a bag of potato chips. What I didn't realize was that the bag of potato chips was sitting at the end of the coffee table being filled with dripping wax from a candle that I knocked over and was too lazy to pick up. I kept thinking, "why do these chips taste like potpourri?" As soon as I saw the candle I put it all together and got sick at my stomach. The rest is history.

Then there was the growing growth on my face that I had to have removed. It has a technical name in which I can't pronounce, but here I am 4 stitches later. That was traumatic!!! They told me it would go away after she was born. Well I wasn't about to walk around with this thing that would bleed profusely if touched. It was so disgusting. I almost hyperventilated having it removed. I had to walk around the dermatologists office for a little bit just to get the strength to get it done.

I could tell you more throw up stories...I won't. I'm just kind of going down memory lane here. I just can't believe my baby girl will be 6 years old tomorrow!!! It just doesn't even seem possible. She is one amazing girl, and I just know that she is going to grow up to be something spectacular. God has blessed her in so many ways, and in turn blessed me. I'm going to go to school tomorrow to have lunch with her, and then we'll be together as a family tomorrow night. Next weekend is when her party is. She doesn't know it, but her grandma from Nebraska is coming down to surprise her. I will post some pics tomorrow of my birthday girl...Happy Birthday Madelyn Grace!!!

Lots of us have been taking walks down memory lane lately! I'm so thankful for the times to remember both the good, and not so good, times with my children.
Our babies are growing up. But they are turning into wonderful young ladies!

Happy Birthday, Madi!
Our girl name that we had picked out both pregnancies was Madison Grace. This year in my class I have a little girl named Madelynne Grace. I love that name!
