One Year

One Year.  Okay, well it hasn't been quite that long.  But it's been a good 11 months since my last post.  And boy has it been a whirlwind of a year!  My hope is to start blogging again.  Probably not everyday, but hopefully once a week!  I'd like to keep up with everything we are doing now as a keepsake for when I'm old and gray! :)

Pretty soon after my last post, I found out I was pregnant!  To say David and I were excited was an understatement.  I was almost to the end of my first trimester when my birthday rolled around so we told our families and they were able to share in our excitement with us!  I could have blogged my weekly progress, but I was so sick the first trimester it wouldn't have worked out, and work kept me pretty busy the rest of the time!  I did keep a weekly journal, though!  I can't believe all that time has already come and gone.

We had a few scares, but all in all, the pregnancy went smoothly and labor was quick!  I went into labor 2 weeks early after working 3 nights in a row. I pushed for 30 minutes and Hadley Catherine was born at 2:02 am on October 19th weighing 6 lbs. 13 oz. and 19 1/4 inches long!  She is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen and has been such a joy.  I can't describe the love I have for her.  I think it's only something another mother would understand. :)

We are gearing up for a very wonderful holiday here.  I know Hadley won't remember a darn thing about her first Christmas, but this mommy is so looking forward to Christmas morning!
