My oldest just turned 8. So it means I got to retell her birth story a few times.This is the story behind her lovely birth mark by her eye. When I was pregnant with her I did one of those hospital tours like every first mom does ^_^. Well, the tour guide talked about hospital SECURITY theWHOLE entire time. Special locks,alarms, bracelets etc. I started to wonder why all the high tech stuff for a Mother baby unit? So I asked and the person told me it is because people try to steal babies. WHAT!? Freaked me out!! So at 22 years old and pregnant I started having awful dreams about my baby being switched at birth or stolen etc. It was stressful! A good friend of mine reminded me to just pray.
So, I did.
I prayed that God would remove my fear, or allow me to recognize my baby so if she is switched I will know. ( because at the time all babies looked a like to me). So fast forward to the delivery room, she came out left hand first and held the doctors hand while they suctioned her nose, as soon as they pulled, or I pushed her out they showed her to me. I saw the thumb shaped birth mark, and I smiled for a brief moment (before the aggressive stitching began) and thought thank you God, I definitely will recognize this baby!
So she loves to hear the story of the day she came into this world and how God put his thumb print on her face.
( She knows it is a birth mark and not his actual thumb print but she likes the fact that God took the time to make her unique and beautiful).
She is becoming an amazing young lady. She is thoughtful, intelligent , helpful and extremely creative. At just 8 years old she is doing amazing things....
and completing the project...
These are Dolls I made for her party. She helped me stuff each and every one of them.
At the party the girls drew the faces on, and dolled them up with scarfs, bows, purses and other fun sticker bling.
Good Job Girls!
Happy Birthday American Girl!
