Em's Birthday

Well this time (well nearly this time - in 1 hours time actually) 14 years ago - my life changed forever.
I gave birth to my first child. After a fairly long labour - Emily Nicole Downey arrived into the world. I can remember it like it was yesterday. Being a mum for the first time - wow!!!!! Nothing prepares you for that!!!!!

Happy 14th Birthday Em.

It's been a looooooooooooooong weekend of partying for us all. Em had some new and old friends over for a party yesterday. That all went off well. We managed to have it outside under our new pergola which was a bonus. Plenty of fun had by all.

Today has been a rather busy one - off to mass this morning, home for morning tea with Nan and Pop. Lunch with Nana and Pa - birthday cake, quick bite for tea and then off to the movies with Dad to see Harry Potter.

Phew..............I'm tired just thinking about what we managed to cram in this weekend.

Sleep tight everyone. Hope you've had a great weekend and ready for brand new week.

Luv Sandie

Ah, winter babies... I remember hand knitted layettes, trying to get babes to keep hats on & struggling with capsules in the rain.

Happy birthday to your sweet girl!
