Happy B-day Ms KD (updated with pictures!)

2 years ago, my precious Kennedy arrived with a bang. I went from 0 cm to 10 in 3 hours and pushed once. I was never so happy and frightened at the same time.

Here's her birth story from her baby book - still makes me well up with tears:


Mommy's water breaks at 6:00 pm - just before she picks up daddy.
She feels her first labor pain around the same time.
By 7:30 pm, the labor pains are about 5 minutes apart.
We are off to the hospital with Grandma and Aunt Ros in the backseat.
Mommy is in pain! She asks how far apart her contractions are and Grandma tells a lie-
they really only 2 minutes apart. I was almost born on the beltway!
We got to the hospital and the nurse told mommy "A first time mommy cannot be having a baby this fast." Mommy felt like cursing her out! When she finally checked, mommy was 7 centimeters! 15 minutes later, she was 10 centimeters.
One push and I flew out! I was born at 9:02, Sept 30, 2005

    Happy birthday! I really want to see the pictures of cute little Kennedy!

    I know - birth is so emotional and awesome and humbling and life-changing. I am sure I will never forget it either! That is a FAST labour - you're going to have to be ready to go with #2.

    Happy b-day Kennedy! It's so strange how quickly the years go by. Even in her newborn photos I can totally see how her features have stayed the same as she has matured. :) And look how long and elegant her hands are in the newborn photo!!!

    Thanks gals
    Gemini and Dark Angel, you little ones are turning 2 soon! Time has flown.
    Gemini- she does look the same - only bigger!

    Medussa, I am glad someone caught that reference. We are around the same age! I never thought of that song as a song about children but Kennedy and I have a favorite lullaby cd that has this song on it. I used to spend so much time nursing her in the glider and listening to this song. It's definitely a favorite and the words are so "on".

    The party was a small family affair. Unfortunately, Kennedy was suffering from a bit of diareah. She was a trooper though -very happy and pleasant despite her feeling bad. and me - I did too much and paid for it today with a sore back and killer sciatica. Note to self: slow down!

    I'll try to download pictures before the weekend.

    Thanks guys. Girlfriend is a :bom: HOT MESS! She's so clear that she's a "big girl" and will tell you in no uncertain terms that she is not a baby anymore. Her sister will be the baby. She says she's ready to be a big sister - time will only tell....

    Funny you say that - All she talks about is going to school! Her cousins and step sister are school age and for some reason, she thinks she's missing out not going to school too. We have her on 2 waitlists for 2 year old classrooms...could take a while. She's ready to move on from my aunt's house though.
