So, then I started thinking back to February of 2008, the 22nd to be exact, to one of my most favorite days of all time. The day Elle was born. Now, I have to first say that, for those of you who don't know, she was going to be the first baby in our family for EIGHTEEN YEARS. Do you know how long that is? Especially when more than half of the people in my family are girls? It's a long time. We were itching for the baby charm. So, as soon as Ryan and Tracy got married, the countdown was on.
She was sassy from the start, decided she wanted to be breach, so ...lucky for us, we had an exact date and time she would be coming to join us. I feel really grateful still that I got to be there for it all. I was in nursing school and working then and it just so happened to be on a day I had neither. :) The world is funny that way. It really always does work out like it should.
So we waited and waited and then all of a sudden, there she was. Brand new. With her little scrunched up nose and jet black mohawked hair. She was the prettiest little thing I still have ever seen. Her brother has a tough act to follow.
And now here we are two months away from doing it all over again. So excited.
