Bitter Sweet

Today marks two special events. First of all, Bria turns 2 today! Secondly, today I would have been due with our third baby. I'm trying not to think about that too much today though, as I just want to celebrate with the little one that I have.

Ah, where to begin with Bria :) Spunky, firey, full of life, mischievous, expressive, animated. The list could go on and on for this funny little girl.

Two years ago, I was rather impatiently waiting for my labor to begin. Walking, cleaning, just wishing. And then, when those first contractions hit, I didn't know if I was ready!

This is right before Keith and I left for the hospital. Those are roses from our anniversary :)

After 3 short hours of labor, we welcomed our little girl into the world. I was so surprised that we had a girl. I just kind of figured we would have another boy.

Bria is so much fun to have around. She loves books, being outside, eating everything in my garden, singing, and is learning her ABCs. I'm so proud of her.

So Bria, I hope your day is full of fun and happiness. You are so special, and I love you very much!

Happy Birthday Bria!! 2 already! wow! What a special day and a special little lady!

I am so happy that on this bittersweet milestone, you have a new little gift from God already growing. I know it doesn't erase anything, but for me, it helped a little bit, although I was scared.... Hand in hand, God helped me through.

Happy Birthday Bria!

And a big congratulations to you guys Stacey. Hope you are feeling well. I was excited when I saw the pregnancy ticker on your blog.

Okay, so your third baby COULD have shared her birthday. Is that right?

I've got something weird too. This baby was conceived on the EXACT same day as my last baby was. WEIRD HUH??? And this will be our third January baby, in a row. Guess I just get my fertility back at the same time every time.

Now is this a new pregnancy announcement. Cause I was just on your blog last week or so and didnt notice you were pregnant.
