Tell me my baby story!

I hear this
approximately 3 times a day...
"Mama, tell me my baby story."

Well my baby is turning 3 this weekend.

And I am going to tell Allikaye's baby story
the exact way that I tell her
approximately 3 times a day.

And believe me
if I tell something out of order or leave something out...
she is right there to remind me!

"Well, mommy had a really big belly
because you were inside!
And mommy had been pregnant for a long time.
So she said to daddy,
"let's go to a movie."
So mommy and daddy went to see
Night at the Museum.
During the movie mommy's stomach started going
bump bump bump!
And it was you wanting to come out!!
So I told daddy we had to go to the hospital
because it was time to meet our little girl!
So daddy drove drove drove
and the doctor said,
"Yep, lay in this bed. Its time to have your baby!"
So after a little bit the doctor said,
"Okay, Ashley (because that's mommy's name),
it's time to push!
And mama pushed pushed pushed
and out came the most beautiful little girl
we had ever seen!
They said,
"What is her name"
and I said,
"Alexandra Kaye."
Everyone couldn't believe how pretty you were!
I said,
"Can I hold her?!"
And I just stared at you and you stared at me
and we loved each other so much!

Still is true 3 years later...
I can't stop staring at her.
She is beautiful
smart
funny
witty
charming
loves Jesus
loves pink
loves sugar
and loves cheetos

and I will continue to just stare in awe
of the angel that God gave me...
3 years ago.

3 years that I never knew I needed so much.
3 years of amazement
and just unexplainable love.
One...
Two...
Three...


Happy birthday my Allikaye!

Best baby story I have heard... Very magical, no wonder she wants it told 3 times a day! Happy 3rd Birthday!

That is such a wonderful post and it reminds me of my grandfather. He always told me stories of when I was a kid and it always made me feel sooooo loved and special. Keep telling her that story and she'll always feel so special in her life. I'm sure other pregnant or new moms are reading this blog so I'd also like to recommend a wonderful free ebook that answers the most common questions about pregnancy and raising a baby. You can get it at http://www.babydirect.com I like to tell others about this cause it's my little way of helping others.

Gorgeous post.

I wish that the real experience of labour was as lovely as you tell her. Ah but they're worth every twinge aren't they?
