My Mom hangs out with me all day, we read,
play, snuggle and she sings (I usually cry when she does). When I
let her have some time she's usually looking at this or that on
the internet, she likes to read books without pictures , I don't
know why, I think that is boring! She mostly just likes to learn
things, anything! She's doing a lot more for herself now too,
like exercising, eating right, and leaving the dishes for Dad.
She's lots happier now that she's finally taking better care of
herself. It makes my life easier to not have to live with a bear
My Dad has a bunch of things that he really
enjoys (besides me and Mom). He loves to play paintball and play
games on his computer. I keep him busy when he's home though.
He's at work a lot, so I make him do things with me that take up
alot of time, like giving me a bath. My Dad teaches me neat stuff
too, like boxing. Dad is eating better and working out too. It's
a good thing 'cause everyone keeps telling me I'm getting to be
such a big girl. He's going to have to carry me around all over
the place. How lucky for him! He'll always have a beautiful girl
in his arms!
My parents met May of 2001. They had a lot
of common goals and dreams. I was one of them! They knew that
they had to be together if they wanted me, so they didn't waste
much time. In June 2001 they had moved in together.
On the 1st of June 2002, my parents got
married. They had a small ceremony with family and only a few
really close friends. My Mom wore my Grandma Hunter's wedding
dress! How cool is that? My Mom's Maid of honor was her best
friend. They made a deal when they were thirteen years old to be
each others maid of honor when they get married. When my Mom
makes a promise, she really makes a promise. I've seen their
wedding pictures and I can see why my Mommy married my
Daddy. About two months before Mom and Dad got married their car
broke down and they pulled into a farm house. Wouldn't ya just
know it, the guy who lived there is a singer. He sang at their
9 Months: July - I am my Mother's birthday
present. Great gift Dad!
August - My Mom thought that she was
pregnant on the 3rd. They finally got a positive test on the
9th. Mom and Dad agreed to not tell anyone until the first
trimester was over. I know that they almost let it spill lots. My
folks bought me a car on the 15th.
September - I got my first picture taken on
the 3rd. Mom and a friend of hers started taking prenatal yoga
classes. Dad knew I was a girl from the 27th of this month. On
the 28th I finally gave Mommy stretch marks.
October - Went to my first concert on the
1st. My heartbeat was heard on the 7th. On the 13th my Mom's
family was told about me. Dad's side was told on the 14th.
November - Had another ultrasound on the
19th. Mom felt me move on the 29th.
December - We did alot of traveling for
Christmas. There was no snow on the ground, so we didn't mind.
January - My Mom's work made Mom stop
working this month. Her job was too hard being pregnant and they
weren't willing to help her out.
February - Other people started feeling me
move this month. I like to kick Dad in the back when he's trying
March - Mom and Dad started to get
everything done to prepare for my arrival.
April - I was due on the 12th, but I didn't
make my grand appearance until the 23rd.
23rd April 2003 - My Mom was suppose to be
induced today. She was very nervous the night before so she
didn't go to bed until midnight. Around 2 in the morning, Mom
woke up from contraction pain. There was something in her that
said this is it! She turned off the alarm clock, Dad was suppose
to got to work. Mom called Dad's work and said that he was not
going to be there. Around 5:30 am Mom woke up Dad and told him it
was time to go to the hospital. When they got here Mom was still
only 3cm dilated, she had been for almost a month. Around 8 am
the doctor broke her water. Mom felt yucky after that so she just
laid on the bed or in the shower. Right around noon the
contractions that my Mom was having got really bad. Poor Mom,
she's so sleepy. The pain finally got to her and she agreed to
morphine. It was a circus show in the labor room at that point.
At 1:20pm My Mom said she had to push, ! the doctor said she
wasn't ready. Mom didn't care after 2 minutes. Mom pushed and
pushed and finally got a brand new baby girl after 12 minutes of
pushing! Mom ended up with a third degree tear, ouch! She also
damaged most of the blood vessels from her chest up. We both
ended up with red eyes from the pressure. What a long day!
