It was a whirlwind, for a first labor, and nobody in my family believed me, when they finally showed up hours after I had called them, and told them I had already had her. My parents even stopped and had breakfast, casually enjoying the morning, only to show up to find out they had missed the whole thing. Of course, who would have guessed that things would have happened so fast? Certainly not me.
Here we are the day we got home from the hospital, 24 hours after Kamy was born. Fresh new parents, with an ugly couch to boot.
Kamy was a very happy baby. She grew into a fun and energetic toddler.
In this next picture, she is almost 4 years old.
Now she is 9 years old and feeling very grown up. She is looking forward to reading the Harry Potter series when she is 10, babysitting when she is 11, and getting her ears pierced when she is 12.
For her birthday, she requested strawberry muffins for breakfast, with yogurt and orange juice. I bought her a special lunchable for lunch, with mini hamburgers. She brought 30 sugar cookies to school, to share with her teachers and classmates. For dinner, she wanted broccoli soup with ham and swiss toast, and for her birthday dessert, she chose ice cream sundaes.
Her presents included a scooter, three sweaters, and the Narnia Book Set. She is having about 7 of her girlfriends over Saturday morning for a tea party, where everyone will come adorned with fancy hats and long pretty dresses.
Happy Birthday Kamyren! (Here is our family birthday picture)
