As I sit here thinking about the fact that my baby is 2 YEARS OLD, my mind immediately goes back to October 22nd, 2009. 1:01AM.
No kicking and screaming.
They rushed you by me and I didn't see your sweet face until 12 hours later.
Even then, I still couldn't hold you. I couldn't believe how small you were and how much you looked like your Daddy! You did have my lips though. :)
I remember sitting down in that rocking chair and holding you for the very first time. You were a day old. My heart felt so incredibly full. I laughed. I cried. It was such a happy day...the day God's promise was fulfilled. I was holding MY baby. I prayed for you for over 3 years and there you were in my arms...my answered prayer.
I remember thinking I would have to go home without you. I would cry every night in the hospital - the thought of leaving you there broke my heart. The Lord took care of us though. Something would happen every day that wouldn't allow me to go home. We were able to stay in the hospital with you for that entire week.
The day we brought you home was exciting and scary at the same time. You were so tiny, weighing a little over 5 pounds. You were such a laid back baby from the very start. You fussed when hungry and that was about it.
I feel like you're still pretty laid back. You're content to sit by us and watch a movie or play in the floor on your own. You're affectionate and have such a tender heart. You're always saying "I love you." You're incredibly smart and I think you're the most beautiful thing God ever created.
You are my heart, sweet girl. I can't imagine my world without you.
Happy 2nd Birthday, Amelia Joy!
You will always be my baby.
I love you,
