Shh...it is one of her presents I bought here
I am up frantically trying to finish getting ready for our cross-country family vacation. Hopefully, we won't be channeling the Griswolds during this trip. I looked at the time and realized in a few moments, my baby girl, will officially be 8! Eight years old! She loves hearing the story of when she was born. Of how excited we were to meet her. Of how I was snacking on plums(her favorite fruit btw) and went into labor. Of how upon getting to the hospital that we felt it was meant to be because our nurse's name was Nicole(Lindsey's middle name). And of course, how she was born to our wedding song, My Baby You by Marc Anthony(no lie!)Most of all, she loves looking at the photo of when her Mommy and Daddy got to truly meet her. Tears in our eyes over our good fortune of getting such a beautiful,healthy girl. She is everything we could of hoped for(and more)in a daughter. Happy Birthday, my little sunshine. We love you!
