One Year Ago Today

One year ago today . . .

I looked like this:
Almost there

One year ago today,
I had an OB appointment, and was told I was 4.5 cm dilated.

One year ago today,
hearing that I was 4.5 cm dilated made me a little nervous.

One year ago today,
I stopped at the store on the way home from my appointment to pick up last minute things for the Birthday/BBQ we had planned.  I also picked up a "coming home outfit" for baby.

One year ago today,
I thought we'd actually have that BBQ.

One year ago today,
my mother-in-law and I texted non-stop discussing which day would be best for baby girl to arrive.

One year ago today,
I called my sister on the phone, and when I told her I was 4.5 cm dilated, and not at the hospital having a baby, I believe she said something like, "WHAT?!  Get your booty to the hospital right now, young lady!"

One year ago today,
I didn't get my booty to the hospital.  I just stayed put awhile longer.

One year ago today,
I didn't even have a name picked out for my fourth baby girl.

One year ago today,
Jeremy and I were still debating names.

One year ago today,
I was soooooo anxious to meet this precious little bundle who had been kicking and punching me for months ~ and who happened to have about 42 hiccup episodes a day.

One year ago today,
my back ached, my body was exhausted, and I couldn't see my feet.  But I didn't care.

One year ago today,
I didn't know that in less than 24 hours I would hold my fourth daughter, and become a Mama all over again.
