You've come a long way, Baby!

Today is Baby's 4th birthday!

Baby is who we loving refer to as our "difficult child." Bella was easy in every sense (until the current teen years!). But, bless her heart, Baby has been more of a challenge. I had a more difficult pregnancy with Baby; she was sideways for nearly the entire ride. Ouch! I had three nights of false labor with Baby before my water broke...two weeks early. When it was time to get down to business, I tried my hardest to force Baby into the world, but she's a tough cookie and didn't want any part of it. After hours and hours in labor, the doctors decided to go in after her and she was finally born via c-section. And that was just the beginning. Have I mentioned she's a redhead? This Baby's all attitude!

But Baby has also taken us on a crazy, wonderful journey. I was 38 when I got pregnant with Baby, and it's true what they say about appreciating things as you get older. We do. Baby has also flourished into a bright and delightful little person who amazes us on a daily basis. We couldn't be more proud of her. (Even though we admit to being concerned about her bag lady look last summer. LOL) ------>

Happy birthday, Baby! We love you.

--Mom, MacDaddy and Bella
