The very moment we found out I was pregnant the joy spilled into our lives and hasn't stopped overflowing since. While there have been a few (and I really mean a few) hard times, they are just tiny specs in the whole picture.
My pregnancy was pretty easy. Lea knew exactly when she wanted to make her appearance and was born two days before her due date after a short, drug-free labor. Our beautiful 8 pound, 1 ounce and 21 inch long girl was born on September 19th 2009 and 10:54am.

|Happy Birthday, my little Lea!|
The moon smiled with such wonder
That the stars peeked in to see you
And the night wind whispered,
“Life will never be the same.”
. . .
For never before in story or rhyme
(not even once upon a time)
Has the world ever known a you, my friend,
And it never will, not ever again…
Heaven blew every trumpet
And played every horn
On the wonderful, marvelous
Night you were born.
