Happy 11th Birthday!!

October 5, 2014

I can’t believe eleven years ago our girl entered this world weighing 4# 11oz. Pre-eclampsia and the onset of my own kidney failure forced her delivery at 33 1/2 weeks. Such a strong girl from the very beginning. She was in the NICU only 8 days and came home weighing 4# 9 oz…not even the traditional 5 pounds. Thank God we proved ourselves competent to bring home such a tiny baby. At eleven years old, she’s now in the 98th percentile…a long way from her preemie self.

This year’s celebrations included lunch with her dad on Friday and celebrations throughout the day on Saturday. Snuck in some ice cream for breakfast.

Archery at 9:00 a.m. with her friends, volunteering at 1:00 p.m. with her favorite kitchen making meals for poor families in the county. Dinner, cake, duct tape crafting, and slumber party with the family including both aunts!

Aunt Jenny was loved all over by these two girls. In fact, Elizabeth wouldn’t let Jenny put her down when they woke up Sunday morning. It was really sweet.

This was a fantastic Sunday morning moment for me. I was nursing the baby and the kids came to play blocks at my feet. They were so nice to one another, playing, sharing, and seeing who could build the tallest tower. The sun was shining in and the kids were happy. For a few minutes, I loved everyone being at my feet.
