What were you doing today, 7 years ago?!?

Well, I remember...I was sitting in St Mary's Health Center becoming a mother for the first time. I was scared out of my mind and excited all at the same time. I remember watching an episode of The Amazing Race (I believe that was the time that Zac and Flo won!), I remember trying to make a final decision on her name, and I remember Tom being much more scared than I thought he was going to be. It was a LONG time seemed like, well, 28 hours or so! :) But in the end it was all worth is because

Lydia Kay Donaldson
was born into our family,
Weighing in at 6lbs, 10oz
and measuring 20 inches long

Now look at 1st grade, a reading machine, pretty good at Tae Kwon Do, a wonderful, helpful big sister, and always making jokes! I have always had dreams of having children, but I don't think that I truely knew what I was getting into...none of us do, but Lydia certainly gave me more than I expected! She is wonderful and stubborn and her own person, and I love her for that!

Happy 7th Birthday Lydia!
