This year has been a year of surprises! We have had several snow storms and they have dropped lots of that pretty white stuff for the kids and kids at heart to play in. The wonder of it has grown old. At first when Sweet Pea would see it snowing, her face would light up and she would run to the window in excitment. Now, when she sees it snowing it does not phase her. It's business as usual for her.
I feel there is a message there... What am I taking for granted?

As I sit here in the room with her... I find myself reflecting on the past.... I think of how she was 7 lbs 11 oz and 19" long.... and how tiny she looked to me... How quickly time has passed. I was 24 years old when I gave birth to her... 28 years later, in the very same hospital, she is giving birth to her first child.
I'm so glad that I can be here for her today. It's quite a priviledge... I am hoping that they don't have to do a c-section so that I can be there when he is born. (a c-section would not allow but 1 person in and her husband has that ticket). I plan to be there with camera in hand to document the miracle of birth...
