I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Great Idea!

I was tagged by my "friend", Lisa. And by "friend" I mean a stranger that I met on the internet...not once, but twice. I first met her through my Vasa Previa email group. She's a VP Mommy like me, with a VP Miracle and how our births started out are similar. I like to think that we make each other feel not so crazy. Then, once I started blogging she came to my blog from my Aunt Lisa's because they are both vegetarians and the same denomination...how neat is that? I met her online, twice!


Anyway... you are supposed to go to your My Documents folder, go to the sixth folder, the sixth picture and then blog about it.


Here's my picture...




It's The Muffin on the day of her birth, April 25, 2006. All 8 pounds, 8 ounces of her. It's still on my computer because I just can't bear to take the pictures of her birth day off. It's on a disk and in at least a thousand other places, but I view this particular folder more often than any other on my computer. As much as I wish I could forget that day sometimes, I never really want to. I look at the pictures and remember knowing and feeling that Someone was standing beside of me in the operating room and when I tried to reach over to touch them, I realized that my hands were already restrained. (Guess Who?) Before I had a chance to open my eyes and look beside of me, they put me to sleep. He was there, I'm sure.

We probably look at her birth pictures more that most normal people. I do it to try and remember more about that day and to search the backgrounds of the pictures to see more details of all that I missed. Big Daddy does it because he's sure that she was never that little.

I think that maybe, Tina, Tara, and Lisa would do this and then there's Laura and Joy, maybe they'll do it too.

Love the pic of Muffin, I do the same thing when I look at Little Man's pics, I search the background and then I ask Andy about what I see, because he sure does remember a lot more than me! Thank you for writing about how we have met yes, twice in the big world of the web! It is pretty cool. :) And I also agree that reading your family's story has always made it a little easier to breathe when thinking about VP. :) I hope Cupcake is doing well, growing, growing.... so glad to hear the US went well, and you had a good experience! Love the name, have never actually heard of it. :) Have a good night....

I so did it! It ended up being a lot of fun and I cracked up when I saw the photo that I was to blog about. Super fabulous! So do you have any family pictures?

I love this picture! If you look at Maggie's face, she still resembles this picture a lot. Maybe it's the eye/nose structure. I'm so thankful for pictures because though my labor and delivery was easier than yours, there is a lot I don't remember. I finally ordered my L&D records. Nothing earth shattering but still good to see.
