23 months

Invitations have been ordered, food has been decided, decorations are being planned...is it really one month until my baby turns 2?

She is a chatty, happy, and active girl. She loves to climb on everything and explore, but if she can't see her momma or daddy, she'll find us. So she is brave as long as she knows she has a safe place to come back to. And I hope for the rest of her life she is that way. I hope she always knows where home is.

Paige: 3 days after conception : )

We are pretty sure she is the one on top.
Taken Saturday, August 23, 2008. A hot, hot day that started off with me feeling hopeless and sad.

38 weeks and 2 days later...
I labored all day, Paige's heart rate kept dropping and stopped bouncing back like they like, so off to the OR we went!

I don't remember hardly anything about her being born. All I remember is thinking she didn't look like what I thought she would look like. She had so much dark hair! I also remember asking David if she was okay 20 times.



23 months later...
My heart is so full!! I'm exhausted, burned out (hello 4 month wakeful period...hello terrible 2s...) but I'm beyond thankful for this little girl and what she has brought to our lives. She saved us. I hope I'll be able to show her how happy she has made me.
