Three years ago today...

...I went to my 40-week maternity appointment, and the doctor sent me to the hospital. He looked at me and said (just a little too matter-of-factly, if you ask me!), "It looks like we're gonna have a baby today."

...I realized that contractions get much stronger after your water breaks.

...I found out how nice an epidural can be. :-)

...I had no idea what I was getting into.

...I didn't know I could love another person so much without ever getting anything from them.

...I had no idea who the Little Einsteins are, or Max & Ruby, or Dora the Explorer.
...I didn't have regular conversations about poop--and didn't know what I was missing. :-)

...I had no idea what an amazing little girl God was bringing into my life.

...I got to meet my beautiful little Gracie for the first time.

Happy Birthday, Grace.

Hi Katy, I followed your link from the adoption board at ivillage and enjoyed your blog - it gives me some ideas for mine. As the mom to two adopted children I look forward to reading your story.
