Ten years, it went so fast...

Ten years ago at this time I was at the hospital getting ready for a c-secton. I was a mother to a 3 year old who still wanted to be rocked to sleep and I couldn't imagine how I could love another child as much as that 3 year old.

Ten years ago Kellie was born. I was thrilled it was another girl. She had the biggest cheeks I had ever seen. Katie was thrilled and ready to teach her to play with barbies. Mike was just as smitten over this little girl as the last one.

Ten years ago as I held that sweet little girl I couldn't imagine the things the next ten years would show me about her. I couldn't imagine how funny she would be. I couldn't imagine what a tender heart she would have. I couldn't imagine all the wonderful things we would do together.

Thank you God for letting me be her mother.

Happy Birthday my baby!

Here's what I wrote in my journal this morning:

Ten years ago today, I was starting my internship at my new school, and was about to be a teacher for the first time, but I remember I kept running back and forth from the office asking if I had gotten any phone calls. (We were an hour ahead of Dallas). I kept telling my supervising teacher about Cara having the baby, but I had a hard time waiting for her to be born.

I can vividly remember it.
