7 YEARS AGO....

So much I have learned in the last 7 yrs.. How incredibly BLESSED I am to have been given such an amazing gift.  7 years ago tonight I was so anxious to meet our beautiful baby girl that I read all the crazy stories about what can induce your labor. Mind you I was 5 days over due so we were ready.  I did the crazy Castor Oil and OJ and Rasberry Leaf Tea and took a shower.  Assuming no way would I go into labor I went to sleep only to wake up in the morning with a SHOW and contractions. Called my Dr and the nurse at the time told me it was probably early labor and could be days..WHAT??????!!!!!!!!!??????????
Really?! So I called Justin and he came home. We timed them and they were every 5 min and down to 3 min.  He said he felt we needed to go.  As the negativity of the typical over due pregnant momma says DON'T GRAB THE BAG I'M NEVER GONNA HAVE THIS BABY!  As first time parents we (more Justin) was a bit nervous. He will say different but seeming he left the back door open and did not even recall this till he had to return back home for the bag due to being at 4 cm and in full blown labor!!!! I am still not sure where these years have gone and wish I could express through the difficult days of dealing with a very independent child that the beautiful days out weigh those moments BY FAR. As I laid with her tonight and cuddled her I told her all about first meeting her and what a wonderful day it was and how she has forever changed our world. She was and is my world.  Embrace every moment cause before you know it we will be sending  them off to college.. These last 7 years have been full of wonderful memories!  They grow up so much in 7 years it's crazy. We are at the stage of starting to not see eye to eye all the time and the attitude but it's another stage of growing up. Some days are pure awful and I dread dealing with whats to come but I love my girl to the moon and back and wouldn't change a thing.  As a mother these are life lessons we wrapped our life around the day we found out we were pregnant.  I am just blown away at how fast time has flown and LOVE my daughter more than words can express and wishing my Lu a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND THANK YOU FOR A BEAUTIFUL 7 YEARS AND LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT GOD HAS IN STORE FOR YOU THE NEXT 7 YEARS !! I love you baby girl and have a GREAT 7th birthday! Kayleigh Madison Rawls 4/27/04 9:07 pm 8lbs 8 oz 21 in long ... God put his trust in us that day and gave us such a beautiful gift!
