My Baby Girl

Today, my baby turns 7. Happy Birthday, Maicy Jo!!
You are an amazing girl. God has blessed us more than we can imagine with you.
You have an infectious laugh, loving eyes, and hugs that could warm any cold heart.

I can't believe that its been 7 years since this moment:

I remember this day so well. Me walking the halls, horrified that when we had our choice of what day to have the baby, we actually chose, April 15. Really?! Tax day?! Who wants that for a birthday?! Too late, she was going to come no matter what. And as I walked, my dear husband napped because after all, having babies is hard work. :) He may never live that down. He was tired. I was just hanging out after all. And then after just a few short ~ahem~ hours of labor, there she was, 7lbs 2 oz of blushing pink. HUGE compared to my firstborn, but so tiny when I held her the first time.

1st Birthday (after the tornadoes left the area)
You can still find her loving chocolate cake this much!

Bunny Trail here ---> Her 1st birthday party was insane.We had just moved a week before into our newly built house. Kitchen counters were being installed  hours earlier (that was midnight til 3 am. Great installers to come out yet at that hour-Not that I gave them a choice) I had no kitchen sink,(despite the pleas, bribes, and possibly threats, made to the plumbers) made all the food in a fog,  and then an hour before the party, tornado sirens started blaring. Somehow we still managed to have a great party, and one we'll never forget! 

And this is now. *sigh* God bless this one, she really has broken the mold. (maybe the tornadoes should have been a warning...)

Happy, happy Birthday, Miss Maicy! We love you so much and wouldn't want you to be any less you!

God spoiled us greatly!

How fun, and what a cutie! Happy Birthday, may a tornado never threaten you party again!

My hubby and the doc were watching the Survivor finale on TV while I was "pushing" and I was more than a little miffed about that later! I kept saying, "Hello, attention over here, please!".
There was no napping though!


I enjoyed looking over your blog. I found your profile on another blog I follow and I added myself to follow you. You are more than welcome to visit my blog and become a follower if you want to.

God Bless You, Ron

Well, at least you have something to be happy about on April 15th! A little sunshine on a usually annoying day. :)
