Tomorrow January 7th, is my daughter Emma's birthday. She will be 27 yrs old, wow. I now feel old, lol. I can't believe it's been 27 years now since she came into my life. The day I gave birth to her, we were having a nasty snow storm. By the time the snow ended, there was almost 2 feet of the white stuff on the ground. Thirty seven hours of labor and finally my baby girl was born. Talk about painful, yikes. Dry birth, breache baby, and no pain killers at all. They had to use forceps to pull her out. While doing so tore me up and I received 36 stitches. Emma was born weighing in at 8lbs 3oz and was 21 1/2 inches long. Full head of dark hair and dark eyes. When they finally would bring her into my room after she was born and cleaned up and checked over, guess who got to hold her first? Nope, not me. Her daddy was right there with open arms ready to welcome his first daughter into his life. He did that with Rebecca also. Hmmmmm, how come I'm the one who carries these girls 9 months, goes through labor and a c section, throwig up the whole 9 months with both girls, swollen ankles, acid reflux and daddy gets to hold them first, grrrrrrrrrrrrr. LOL.
Tomorrow Emma and her family are coming over for dinner. It is a birthday dinner for Emma. I am making Tortellini, meatballs and sausage, a big salad. Emma says no cake mom. Yea right, like I'm really gonna listen, lol. Yep I got a cake and icecream too, heeeheee. Deal with it Emma, lol. Also got some shrimp, cause this girl loves shrimp. And if there wasn't any she would complain. I had no idea what to get her for her birthday. So, we got her a gift card to Target, and 2 birthday cards. One from Jim and I and one from her sister. And yes, I will be taking pictures.
Monday starts my diet. Went to store today and bought lots of fresh fruit and veggies. I am determined to do this. Well, it is late and I am tired. I think I will go to bed now. Jim is asleep on the couch. I will leave him there, he'll get up later and come to bed. Hope your all enjoying your weekend.
