I had planned on starting this blog "series" on Saturday and I was going to call it the "10 days of Mia" (has a much nicer ring with the "10" instead of "8", no? ;) But I seldom ever blog on the weekends (although I do catch up on my favs) so I figured I'd just start it today, so "8 days of Mia" it is. What is "it" you ask?????
This was January 18th, 2010 around 6:30am. We had just arrived at my moms house to drop Manuel off (she was watching him while Manny and I went to the hospital). I was a scheduled c-section so thankfully we had time to prepare everything in advance. It's so crazy to look at this picture and think that my 7 lbs 3.4 oz baby girl was snuggled in that belly. If I think about too much, I'll cry. I was singing to her last night (a song I made up months ago, where I pretty much just say, "Mia Grace, Mia Grace, oh you are my Gracey Face" in a singy songy, lullabye tone over and over again. I know, Grammy Award winning ;) but I started to cry. I hate being so dramatic, but for some reason this whole turning one thing is REALLY getting to me. I don't know why. It didn't happen when Manuel turned one. The only thing I can say is that it's so hard on me this time around because MAYBE she's our last child. Who knows? But I do know that next Tuesday, January 18th I will be spending my sweet girls 1st birthday with her. Yes, I took off work. I did the same thing for Manuel's 1st, 2nd and 3rd birthday (for his 4th birthday he had started school, so I didn't want to keep him home) and I'll do the same thing for Mia.
Stay tuned for tomorrows post when Mia is no longer snuggled in my belly, but has made her grand entrance in to the world! :)
1) Don't forget to enter my CSN giveaway below! The giveaway ends on January 17th at 11:59pm.
2) More importantly...tomorrow is my hubby's knee surgery (possible ACL reconstruction, they'll know once they get in there). Please pray that everything goes well. My husband can NOT stand sitting still, he has to constantly be going, going, going. So pray that he has peace of mind and can just "be" while recovering.
