Today is my birthday!!! I am 34 years old. I would like to tell you about when I was born.
Here are 2 pictures of my mom(and dad) when she was pregnant with me.
Yes, that is a wedding picture.
It is hard to tell with the shirt she is wearing. That was a reception at my cousin's house for my mom and dad.
Interesting to note -- I had no idea about the existence of these pictures until I was 31 years old. My mom had them in an envelope in a lock box and forgot about them!!
Okay, back to the day I was born. I have no idea how long my mom was in labor(I should ask), but I know it wasn't too long. My dad used to tell me that she decided when she was ready for me to come out! The doctor was having dinner in a restaurant when they paged him!! I was born at 10:04 on a Sunday night.
I was an ugly newborn.
I got a little cuter a few days later
Okay, not really, but isn't my mom beautiful??
Then at my baptism
My parents look more like it was the 50's instead of 70's!!
a few months later
By my first birthday I was downright pretty!!
I should also note that I wasn't planned (obviously) and my parents had been dating for 5 years and decided this was a pretty good reason to finally get married LOL!! I was also 2 weeks early.
And that is the story of my birth.
