She’s bouncy, she’s bubbly, she’s endless delight,
She’s feisty, she’s bossy, She’ll put up a fight,
She’s nose rubs and warm hugs, and laughter & love,
She’s kisses and snuggles,
Our gift from above.
She’s sighs and frustrations, and sometimes tears,
She’s giggles and sunshine,
A beautiful 3 yrs.
Our little lady…“This photo session was all fun and games until you asked me to sit still and smile. You get that, don’t you? You should know me by now! :)” I’m guessing those were the thoughts going through her adorable little head. 3 going on 13. Help me please 😉 I got wallets of this pose anyway, because this is the face I see rather often 🙂 I’m thinking big sister was holding her attention here.That mischievous look I love.Another familiar expression of hers 🙂Sometimes I look at her and wonder how on earth she happens to be 3!? She had her own mind from the very start. All my other babies were born late. And when I say late, I mean it 🙂 Kirsten was 6 days late, Devan 11 days (pretty sure he’d still be in there if he could :)), and Tristan was 5 days late. So when #4 came along, I figured I’d be late again. I had a pattern going on. Not so, said she 🙂 When I went to my midwife at 2 wks. till Dday, she informed me that I would be delivering a baby that day. I’m pretty sure my jaw hit the floor 🙂 I always had false labor with my others, but I never was on bed rest for dilating too soon. But this time was different. 7 cm and I had no clue. I was very uncomfortable, and lots of contractions, but never that painful that I thought I’d be at 7! Well, like I said she had her own time table. I told my midwife I really needed to go to the store for some things, and she allowed me to, as long as I wasn’t getting too many painful contractions. Let’s just say, my trip to Walmart was super fast and I was a slightly stressed momma to be 🙂 Needless to say, Jenna decided she liked it just fine in her mommy’s belly. Every day checkups and no change. Midwife said walk up and down the stairs, maybe that will get you going. Nope. I was milking cows, hoping all that bending and squatting would do something. No again 🙂 She came at 11 days early instead of 14. I was just amazed that I had one before my due date! My labor was not quite 3 hrs. And much easier than the others. What a blessing! And because I was so sure she was a boy, I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard ” It’s a girl!”. Happy, relieved tears. She was perfect. A beautiful, dark haired princess. Our gift from God.Happy, tired mommy. Glad to be home! Like I said, our little princess. I miss those days 🙂 But I love her age now, too. Just wish time wouldn’t fly so fast! But it did, and here we are with a busy 3 yr. old 🙂 I am thankful, so thankful for the blessing of children! I think I realized a little more with each child, just how fast the time does go. And I had more appreciation for those baby days. And each milestone. So interesting to watch them grow into their own personalities. And this girl has quite a bit of personality ;)But I wouldn’t change a thing!
Are you staying warm this week? I guess that would depend where you live 🙂 Here it is FRIGID. In my opinion 🙂 Blessings!
