“It’s a Girl!”…was what the doctor said 3 years ago today and I do not think anyone was more surprised than me. My hubby and I wanted to be surprised so we opted not to find out the sex of our 3rd baby. I personally could have sworn it was a boy. After having one of each I felt the 3rd pregnancy was similar to my 2nd with our son. Boy was I wrong!
At week 41 I had to be induced. There was a fear of meconium, which ended up being present in the amniotic fluid (talk about disgusting and worrisome). So I went in at 7:30am and Pitocin was started at 8am. I started my HypnoBirthing (which is amazing and I highly recommend this method) and by 12:15pm we had a baby, a baby girl and we could not have been more excited!!!
We had ourselves a little Maddy (Mommy + Daddy= Maddy). Actually daddy named our little Maddy, his inspiration being a character from Tombstone, his favorite movie of all time.
I have been experiencing little heartaches throughout the day…just thinking back on the day she was born and how beautiful it was, how quickly the time has flown by, and how quickly it will continue to fly by, why!? Why must they grow so fast?
I adore the fact that there are still words that her little mouth doesn’t know how to enunciate fully, like school. She calls it shhh…cool, priceless! This is the outfit she wants to wear on her first day of shhh…cool.
I am going to miss 2, I love that age. But I will gladly embrace and welcome 3!
For her birthday she received some gorgeous princess bling (fake of course), Minnie Mouse tea set, Beauty and the Beast, and so much more. She is one blessed little girl to have so many family members who love her so much.
How do you handle those heartaches at the realization that your baby/babies are growing up? Do you ever experience mommy “tears of joy”? Do you find they strike on birthdays, first day of school, or are they random moments? Why must our little treasures grow so quickly?
