I can't believe as I type this that my Molly is 4 years old today. Mike and I both were saying last night that it feels like just yesterday that we drove to the hospital for her to be born. It isn't a very exciting birth story. When you have a scheduled c-section the drama is limited. We didn't know the sex of the baby so that added a piece of anticipation to the birth. I was suppose to be at the hospital by 9 but I kept getting calls all morning pushing back my arrival time. They finally told me to get there at 2. Of course, we were a few minutes late!! They didn't waste any time and our beautiful girl arrived at 3:27. It was wonderful and overwhelming all in the same breath. Molly has been a blessing ever since. She has shown an amazing amount of fire for such a little person. She has opinions on what will happen, she can be very stubborn, she is a little sponge and learning something every day but she is also very loving and a wonderful cuddler. These last few months have allowed me some special time to spend alone with Molly. The alone time hasn't been guilt free. I feel bad that I haven't had the same time for Cameron and Amanda. The time I have had with her has been the longest alone time that I've had with any of my children since Molly was born. It has also been the scariest time I have had as a Mother and her pure will to be tough has held me together on some really hard days. I could be a puddle of tears on the inside but she always kept me strong for her by never being scared and being an awesome patient. She is a great girl!
Happy Birthday to my Molly! I love you, J! Always.
