One year ago today

Exactly one year ago today was my due date. I'm a bit hazy with the details but I remember becoming quiet anxious on the day. My previous 2 daughters had come the day before her due date and on her due date which made me believe that this one would be similar.

I had been in hospital 3 days before with mild contractions and was kept in overnight. Hooked up to monitors and beeping machines. I would never have guessed I would go 13 days overdue.

Looking back, I miss being pregnant (although this was my last). I miss feeling her movements in my tummy and I miss my bump. This last year has flown by and in less than 2 weeks, I will be celebrating a first birthday (followed by a second birthday). 

 I'm a tad emotional today as I am so proud of how much everything has changed just by adding a tiny (8lb 13oz) baby to the mix. I am so proud of my other girls for accepted and loving their baby sister. They teach her new things everyday. 

I feel blessed.
