Twenty-six years ago at this time I was in labor....allllll day. But the happy result was this sweet little one! (doesn't she bear a resemblence to the Flower Baby?-just noticed)
Some interesting facts about her birth:
*She was born in a Lazy-Boy rocker recliner-in the labor room.
*She was my last birth without any type of anesthesia (including episiotomy-ouch!)
*We moved to California a month after she was born.
*We didn't trade her for a pig.
*She was my first thumb sucker-and even though thumb sucking ruins teeth-it makes for happy, contented babies.
*She has had a lot of trials in her life. She developed severe eczema and allergies 3 weeks after she was born and has had to endure stares, taunting, ridicule and many heartaches through her young life as she tried to cope.
*I had to breastfeed her for 18 months-she was allergic to EVERYTHING!
*She has a wonderful imagination-she could take a stack of crayons and play a game with them.
*The decibel level in our home doubles when she comes-she is full of fun!
Happy Birthday Amesy-I'm glad I'm your momma!
