Happy Birthday to Rory!

Today is an amazing day. Rory Beth-Ann turns TWO!


Wow. I am a little emotional about that. In a good way!

To celebrate the birth of my one and only daughter, I will share some pictures, highlights and memories of the last 720 days.

Rory was born at 6:50 pm on Wednesday, May 6, 2010. She was born via C-section after 18 hours of intense labor. My contractions started at midnight (on the dot!) and progressed to every 3 minutes apart within a half an hour. Unfortunately, they did nothing and I never dilated past 6 cm. FUN, huh!? :)

Minutes old! 9 lbs, 10 oz, 20.5 inches long.

Sweet Baby Girl!

First family picture. :)

3 months old!

At her Baptism.

First hair cut! 6 months old...goodbye mullet!

First Christmas. She already thinks I'm nuts. :)

Trip to the zoo for "Big Sister Day." This was the day before Trace was born.

The last two years have been filled with ups, downs and in betweens. I have learned so much about myself and about the things that are really important in life. I am a better person because of Rory. (And Trace!) Having a child changes your life in every way imaginable and you become the best version of yourself. I am so blessed.

She's so adorable!!! We did a Big Brother day for our oldest the day before we had our second too. I guess that's the benefit of the scheduled c-section - you actually to schedule that special time with your first, while they are still your one and only.
