Look who’s turning ONE tomorrow… The kids are fighting over which kind of cake “she” likes best (meaning which one they want the most). 2007-09-07 kids 0019
I can’t believe last year at this time I was absolutely DYING of anticipation waiting for this little arrival. I was counting contractions and hoping with all my heart to meet this little girl and hold her in my arms as soon as possible. Here we are right before and after she was born…little did we know how much joy this little girl would bring into our lives.

We were laughing about those already humongous infant chubby cheeks…and check out the fun 11-toe footprints. Still miss that toe.

  7. Lucy is the cutest, and I love her extra toe on the foot chart. Hope her foot is healing well. I hope I look like you in the delivery room and not like crap. Actually, I probably won’t care at that point 🙂
