30 Years ago today....

I was born.  June 23, 1982.  I was over due and delivered via cesarean section.  I was an 8 pounder, and I think 20 inches long.

 My proud Papa!!  When he came out to the waiting room to share the news that I was a girl, my Mammaw Helen asked him if he was excited, and he told her she was excited enough for the both of them!!

Looks like Mom was dressing me to go home!!  What's funny is that things sure have changed but it doesn't look like those hospital bassinets have.

My hospital picture.  Those really have changed, this one is horrible!  They only got half of me in the pic.

My Mom was 20 years old when she had me.  I always thought that was so cool, that we were 20 years apart.

My very proud Mama!  Doesn't she look so beautiful!  Especially after just having a baby!!

I think here I'm laying in my grandmother's lap.  Not sure which one, but that would be my assumption.  Mammaw Helen maybe?

I talked to my Mom in heaven today and wished her Happy 30 years of Mommyhood.  Even though she's no longer with us, she still needs congratulating too!  I am so thankful for all the years I did have her.  She helped me be the woman, wife and mommy I am today.  I was rather sad about turning 30, but I guess it's not that bad.  I am happy that I can celebrate 30!  Here's to many more!!  Thanks Mom for bringing me into this world!
