Just about 11 months ago this was me:
I believe that picture was taken on your due date (April 26, 2010 aka my 28th birthday!). It was also my first day of maternity leave. I was very proud to have worked right up to my due date...little did I know I could have worked for another full week!
|This was the whiteboard in our room, after midnight they came in and replaced that 4 with a 5, you were determined to be a Cinco de Mayo baby.|
|All I could eat all day was chicken broth, jello, and popsicles. This did not stop your dad from eating three full meals. If I remember correctly: an omelet, a cheeseburger & fries, and a chicken caesar salad. Yes, I remember what he ate.|
|No one expected that you were such a big baby! he doctor said later that I must have had very strong ab muscles.|
|First family pic. Exhausted and ecstatic.|
|Daddy and his girl.|
|Already wrapped around your tiny finger.|
|Is she proud? I can't tell! :)|
|Still my favorite place to kiss.|
|We did it Lily! At least YOU got some sleep after all that.|
|"I'm an Auntie"|
|Hello world! Your very first facebook picture. Everyone was so excited to see you.|
|Look at that beautiful face. This is still the background on my cell phone. I love it.|
|All tuckered out.|
|Nothing compares to this sweet little face and the fact that you stop crying when I hold you.|
|Just the beginning|
I couldn't get over the fact that you were seeing everything for the first time. Even if most of it looked liked colored blobs to you. You had never seen a tree or the sky. Seeing the world through your eyes has been one of the best things about being your mom.
So that's our story, the beginning of everything.
