I won't have enough time to post tomorrow morning but I wanted to say HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY to my sweet Macy!!! I cannot believe that she will be 5 years old tomorrow!! How fast did that go? WOW!!!
Five years ago at this time, I was so excited and nervous. I was making sure I had everything in order in the nursery and all my hospital bags packed with a sweet baby girl and a sweet baby boy outfit! We didn't want to find out the sex, we wanted to be surprised when my doctor yelled out "it's a boy" or "it's a girl"! We picked the name Macy for a girl and Joshua for a boy. I was going in at 8am the following morning for a scheduled c-section because he/she was breech!
The c-section was rough for me, I have a horrible time with anesthesia. But it was all so worth it when I heard my doctor yell "it's a girl!". It was a Macy!! She was so precious, so small. She weighed in a 6lbs 13.7 oz and 18.5 inches long! She was the sweetest thing! The joy of our lives!! Wow, we were parents!
I watched my whole surgery. Yeah, I know, kinda gory, but I was a critical care RN working in that same hospital at that time and it was fun! I did't watch him cut me open, but I watched the rest of it on a huge mirror that they brought over for me! Dr. Ferry even pointed out my tubes and ovaries, etc to Chris after Macy was out! LOL Very interesting and neat to see!
So, happy birthday my sweetheart!! Mommy and Daddy love you so much and we are so proud to have you in our lives!!
Here I am waiting to go to the OR:
