Happy 4th Birthday, Miss Kameryn!

I love all of my girls just the same.
And I can look back on each of their births and recall tiny details ~
Things that stick out, that I have tucked away in my heart.
But I have special memories, more memories with Kameryn's birth than with the others.

~ Sweet Kameryn Faith ~
I was in the hospital for nearly two weeks before they forced you out ;)
Two weeks of saying goodbye to Daddy and your two big sissies at home each and every night.
Two weeks of visits from precious friends and family.
Two weeks of ultrasounds and machines.
Until finally, they said you would be safer on the outside than on the inside.

On January 27th, 2009 at 4:12pm we got to see our tiny little 34 1/2 weeker for the first time.

You were GORGEOUS.
Machines and all ;)

And would you believe that after daily visits from NICU staff, telling me that I could expect you to have a 5-6 week NICU stay, you only stayed there for 8 hours.  You were a toughie.
Still are.
 Oh how your sissies loved you. 
And you loved them too.
You did some growing . . .

And turned into the most vibrant and joyful toddler EVER!

You have a zest for life that cannot be matched.
 I LOVE being around you.  You have this amazing way at looking at the world. 
Every day is a new adventure for you.

Then one day you weren't the baby anymore. 
You liked being the baby. 
You were great at being the "little one".
But it turned out you were FABULOUS at being the "not so little one" too.

You like to lead. 
And your little sister follows your every move.

You're a snuggler.  You love to sleep with Mama on the nights that Daddy is at work.
{And you love sneaking in to sleep with Mama and Daddy on the nights that Daddy is home}.
You have such a giving spirit.  Always willing to help out and be a friend. 
Always looking out for others.

You are a tremendous joy, Miss Kameryn.
Each morning is filled with new adventures with you!
Happy 4th Birthday, my Sweet Girl!

What sweet words that she will treasure forever. Being a mother is the best and I love your spirit and attitude because we all know it's the toughest job on earth. But if we just stop and let go of the little things, there is so much joy in the day to day.

Oh her eyes in that black and white one! Wow! And so awesome she only had to be there 8 hours! She really is a tough one. My baby (well now 2 1/2 year old) was born at 32 weeks and was in the NICU for 19 days.

Oh, happy birthday to your sweetie pie! I didn't realize her birth was so difficult, but apparently ALL worth it. :)
That FACE....just amazing.
