19 Years Ago Today....

I gave birth to my 2nd and last child. A momentous occasion. The Ultrasound said the baby was a boy. I already had a boy. I really wanted a girl because for health reasons I was told to only have 2 babies. Needless to say I got over my disappointment pulled out all my 1st son's clothes and picked a boy's name. 2 boys...I was fine with it since I was lucky enough to be able to have children and all the tests said the baby was going to be healthy.

Well when the doctor held the baby up during delivery and said it's a girl I almost passed out! My last child was a daughter! Wasn't she a huge and lovely surprise!
Wow do I look young here. I was 26.
Me, my 2 year old son and new daughter.
My beautiful daughter today.
Happy 19th Birthday Seneca!

Happy Birthday Seneca!

You look like a kid yourself in those photos! LOL! What a wonderful surprise!
OK, I'm curious, what was the name you had picked out?
The same thing happened with my sister. She was expecting "Jack" and ended up with "Lily"!

you look so young and elated to have 2 gorgeous children. how blessed we are to have our children, i never take that for granted. what a gorgeous young lady she has grown up to be. would be lovely to see a picture of her big brother too :)
my friend has been told she is having a girl and at her baby shower she got heaps of pink and girly things so i do hope the doctors are right or she will be taking lots of things back to the shops ~_~
sending birthday wishes to your youngest.
p.s. love the swap doll, you are so clever and your swap partner is so lucky!
