Today is my DD Sierra's Birthday...I'm sitting here thinking about how much she's grown...She was such a good baby (I think I'm paying for that now lol), and was always quiet, unless she needed something, slept well, was sleeping all night from the second night she was home!  I remember the doctor telling me that I could stop giving the night time bottle, and telling him that she had stopped that months ago!!!  lol 

I wish I had pictures on here of her as a baby, but back then digital cameras were more expensive than now, and I can't even tell you if I knew anyone with one!  The hospital where I had her, while it had it's problems, at least would keep her over night, so that I could get some sleep before I had to take her home, and she was also in there a lot because she had trouble keeping her body temperature up (I guess I had that problem when I was born too, but that probably comes from the fact that when my mom had me, they had the a/c on in everyone's room, and that was right before they decided little hats were the right way to go! lol) 

She was 6 lbs 8 ounces when she was born and 19 inches she was SOOO tiny!  I remember marveling at her tiny fingers and toes and thinking that she was sooo small!  When I was in labor, she had pooped up there (she was 11 days late), so when they got her out they took her from me before I got to hold her so that they could suction her mouth, and then gave her to her dad...I was crushed!  Then they took her out!  I don't know what they were thinking...David held me and told me he'd go with my mom and brother and watch her being weighed and bathed and that when they were done with her I'd get to hold her!  By the time they were done watching, I was still laying in my own mess and David had a FIT!  Told the nurse who was busy chatting with her friend that she needed to get DONE!  lol He's always been a good guy like that lol.  I finally got to hold her when they brought her to my room, and it was great! 

Now she's sooo beautiful already, and will be a serious knockout soon!  I think we'll have boys knocking down the door at any moment now, but I just wanna keep her a baby!  I never wanted her to grow up...I wanted her to be my baby forever, and still do...  She has her moments and sometimes those moments are hours!  However, she's a great big help with her baby brother, always helping me keep him in the living room when he's crawling around, and has been trying to get him to walk since he was old enough to stand!  She always told me even when he was just a tiny baby that she was going to teach him to walk, go potty, and everything else she can do because she was going to be the BEST big sister in the world!!!  She gets me diapers, finds the wipes when no one else can, and if Drake gets hurt, sometimes she beats me to him and just hugs him and kisses him!!!  She's a big old mama hen!  I don't know what I would do without her!

I guess to wrap this up, I just Thank God, that I was blessed with 2 beautiful children and 2 angel babies that never quite made it this far, but I'm truely blessed to have the awesome kids that I have!  So, when I'm frustrated, and ready to pull my hair out I just remember that God blessed me with these kids, and no matter how unruly they become, He would never give me more than I can handle!

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Sierra!
