April 1, 1982

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

I told everyone that my due date was April 1. Do you think they believed me? NOOO!!!
First, I had to convince the husband that my water really did break. Then, I had to convince the nurses that this baby wanted to be born. 'Twas hard, but true. A beautiful 8 pound 1 ounce 20 1/2 inch baby girl joined us at 9:27 am.

Sherry Alison doesn't look like me or her dad. She doesn't look like big sister, Sarah Lynn, who turned 2 years old 17 days after she was born. I see all four of her grandparents when I look at her. I think it's great - they will live on forever.

I always told my girls that if anyone asked what they wanted for their birthdays, tell them to get their birthstone for them: diamond. This is so fitting for them. They are truly my gems, my miracles. They helped me grow. They give me such joy! They will do anything for each other. I can't ask for anything better. I can sit forever and just listen to them talk to each other.

I look back at our lives together often. So many good memories! So many things to smile about and to laugh about when I think of them! Things to be so proud of!

And now we will be adding Baby Z to the mix. Fifteen more weeks! I realize that this baby will come when this baby wants to - just like Momma. I'm ready, though. To think I have my next big vacation to plan for: Disney World in 4-5 years. If Momma and Aunty Sarah want to come, fine! If not, oh well!

This saga will continue...hallelujah!

    Aww, an April Fool's baby!! emoticon

Growing up, everyone always asked me if my birthstone was a ruby, b/c that's my name. I'd get mad and say, "No! It's a garnet!" hahaha

Disney World is gonna be a blast! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    April 1, for real!!!!! that's too funny.

Did I ever tell you that my dd had her first boy on his great grandmother's 65th birthday and before that she was also born her her g.grandmother's 65th birthday too. But she was born in Mb. so she was actually born at 10:29pm, so with your dd in Halifax, you know that changes the time zone, so my dd's was April 30, but she was born on her great grandmother's May 1 birthday....
