I can't believe that exactly 1 year ago today I was being told by the Dr. "your baby is not responsive on the monitor or ultrasound. We're going to have to do an emergency C-section." We still had 6 weeks to go. You can't imagine the panic/fear/anxiety/stress/need-for-your-own-Mom feelings that set in, in a nanosecond, after hearing those words. In fact, I don't think I heard much after "your baby is not responsive..." Somehow I made it to the hospital on my own...risking life-and-limb while dialing your Dad, your Nana and Grandpa, and the mental Jesus hotline all at the same time.
And you were born. Perfect. Our little Peanut.
And my how you have grown! Almost walking. Independent. Funny. A bit of a bruiser with that right hook.
Probably shaping up to have a big mouth like your Mom.
Happy Birthday my Maddy-Mad. I cannot wait to see what this year has in store for you.
