I can't believe I missed it!

I had this whole post in my head regarding the anniversary of this day, but I have been so preoccupied by the "Batman Countdown" that I completely missed it. Well, I guess it's only by a day or two...

Anyway, that day changed my life. It brought me this little girl



Now I won't say that everything went completely great after Feb 7th. There was this and then this and this post. I worried everyday that it was all a dream, that I was going to wake up and I wasn't pregnant. I even had dreams about it! I worried that this was going to happen again.

I don't want to ever forget where I came from or the journey, the struggles, the heartache that brought us to where we are. I think it makes me appreciate my daughter more than I would have. I certainly haven't gone through the pain or procedures that some have had to endure, but I had my fair share of disappointing months, frustrations, almost five years of unhappiness.

I thank God EVERY DAY that Brynna came into our lives. And won't ever forget our first little milestone leading up to her- February 7,2009.

I agree. I thank God everyday that my twins are here and healthy. I also know that they were well worth the 2.5 year wait. I too, agree, that my pregnancy and birth were so different than other mommies b/c I struggled so much to have them. I apreciated and savored every single moment and took nothing for granted. Happy Anniversary!!!
