(and yes, awards are here too...I promise!)
Today is my precious princess Catherine's 6th birthday! Six years ago today I was pleading with my doctor to "just get her out of me NOW!" (I really did say that...) This little bundle of joy loved my womb. Loved it so much that she hung out in there for an extra week! AN EXTRA WEEK!!! (In pregnant mom years that feels like 10 years.) Finally, she arrived with jet black hair, pale white skin and ruby red lips...just like a little Snow White! After a few days the black "mommy gave you too much hormone" hair fell out and soft fuzzy blonde sprouted through. Then all hair growth stopped until about age 3. That and no talking...I mean not a word except for an occasional grunt until 3. Then wham! Complete articulate sentences came pouring out of this kid!
Today I celebrate my sweet surprise! Yep, she was a surprise!!! I was 37 and thought I couldn't have anymore babies. But God always has a bigger plan! So this is for my peach pie! I love you, beautiful girl!!!!! (yeah, you are definitely worth the 345 extra tests I had to have because I was an "old" mom!)
Since we are celebrating here at Bee and Rose today, I want to share a little love with ya'll too! Jacie over at Mom Stuff (and the owner of Chic Bebe Couture) awarded me with this lovely LUV Award! Please go visit Jacie's blogs! There are all sorts of delights over at the Chic Bebe Couture shop! I love the pony-0's with tails and the tutus! Thank you for sharing this with me, Jacie!
