On this day...

Saturday, February 13, 2010
four years ago, my sweet baby was born. I can still remember seeing her precious face for the first time, and the first words my hubby spoke. "She looks just like you", he proudly said. And she did. She was an angel sent from God.
I didn't want to have a second child. A year after Emma was born, I was pregnant and it, unfortunately, ended in a miscarriage. I couldn't make sense of this tragedy and was certain that I didn't want it to happen again. It took me two years to muster the courage to take that leap of faith...to try again. I kept my fingers crossed and prayed that I'd carry the baby to full term.

On February 13, 2006 just as Emma and I were returning from shopping for her Valentine's Day party for preschool, my water broke as I stood in the kitchen preparing to make heart shaped cookies at 4:45 pm. By 5:30, my obstetrician confirmed that I was in labor. I was elated! I couldn't wait to meet my new bundle!!

At 10:29 pm, my baby Harper arrived and our lives have never been the same since. She is the sweetest little love bug on earth, stealing kisses and whispering "I love you" in our ears. Full of wonder and delight, she's brightened the lives of all who know and love her.

And so, it is on this very special day of her life and mine, I wish her the happiest birthday a little girl could ever have!
