Tomorrow is LO's birthday. She's happy, healthy and strong and we have so much to celebrate. But, today, I am a sad mama. A little sad because we are officially closing the baby chapter, but also because today brings back lots of sad and scary memories. One year ago today, after every treatment known to man and more than 7 weeks of hospital bedrest, my body gave up. The contractions couldn't be stopped and my water broke. The doctor removed the cerclage-- the little stitch that had protected my baby from the outside wold was gone.
So much has happened since that day one year ago. I need to keep reminding myself that she's great- tall, smart and strong with a head full of wild curls. Despite all that happened, she's amazing. I know you guys will understand why I cry as I type this. Enjoy your amazing little ones! Happy Holidays.
