Happy 1st Birthday Ava Beth!
I can't believe you will be one year old tomorrow! A year ago tonight, I was miserable and up all night long. Contractions were coming like crazy so the next morning on December 22nd, a friend drove me to Baylor Grapevine in the sleet and snow and eight hours later, you were here! The nurse said I was not in full blown labor but Dr. Neal thought I would be soon so instead of sending me home in the snow, He kept me and induced labor. Daddy showed up in his UPS uniform but Mommy was prepared so he had clothes to change into. The day was incredible and the labor and delivery were both great! I would do it all over again, but not yet! (No Mom, I am not pregnant again! Not yet!) I love to dream about the days my babies were born. I like to envision the people, the nurses, the room and remember how amazing it was the day they came into my life. Those two days supersede anything and everything. There is nothing like it!
