Seven years ago today I said goodbye to my baby, my just over two year old son, who would be a big brother hours later.
Seven years ago, I ate a cheeseburger and fries at the diner with my husband on the way to the hospital.
Seven years ago, I took medication to induce my labor since my baby girl didn't want to budge.
Seven years ago, I was about to meet my daughter.
Seven years later, she follows me everywhere.
Seven years later, she is blonde with straight, fine hair- not at all what I pictured (imagined dark curls like me!)
Seven years later, she writes books almost every day and has a pen name.
Seven years later, she adores reading books and being read to.
Seven years later, she is resilient and gets right back up after falling down.
Seven years later, she has a vocabulary that grows more sophisticated each day.
Seven years later, she is my manicure and pedicure buddy.
Seven years later, she is creative, cuddly, smart, stubborn, and all I ever hoped for in a daughter.
Happy 7th Birthday to Megan!
