A Not So Random Tuesday 

Happy 12th Birthday to #5.

I remember 12 years ago on Sunday, August 8th, feeling a little out of sorts as the 4 of us were at Mass. I felt quite strongly that I wasn't going to make it through the day without going into labour and all I could think of was how I was going to get the house stocked with food, how we could get the crib and changing table assembled and how we would get the bedrooms of #3 and #4 switched around so that #4 would be sharing the larger bedroom with the new baby. #5 was preparing to make her arrival 2 weeks early, so none of these details were taken care of as of that Sunday.

I can vividly recall doing a major grocery shop that afternoon and stopping every few minutes to ride out a contraction. Somehow everything got taken care of and off to the hospital we went later that night. #5 made her appearance into the world shortly after 4:00 am on August 9th.

Never short on smiles, (even now that she has braces), she has brought a lot of joy to our lives. As of course, have #3 and #4.

Happy Birthday, Pumpkin!
