Does every mom start birthday blogs with this statement? I can't believe my baby is 2! I honestly don't know where the last 2 years have gone. It feels like just last week Lucy was a baby! Looking back to May 1, 2006, brings a few tears - probably normal for most moms, but we had a rough start with Lucy. I was scheduled for a c-section at 8:15 a.m., but when we went at 6 to prep for surgery, the nurses couldn't detect Lucy's heartbeat. They did an ultrasound and all of the sudden I was being rushed to the O.R. for an emergency c-section. Lucy was not breathing when she was born. The doctor started to intubate her (we are all still in the O.R. - my doctor was stitching me up), but pulled the tube out to try again, as she pulled the tube out, Lucy started breathing. Praise the Lord! Lucy spent the next 36 hours in the NICU - since I had a c-section, it was very hard for me to go see her.
Okay, so this picture needs some explanation. The girls were "playing school" and she put on Norah's shoes, her jacket and back pack and said to me "Bye, Mom. Love you!"
