Emma's 4th Birthday!

Thursday, Emma turned 4 years old. Such a big day for her.

I can remember the day that I gave birth to Emma. I remember I was out of town for the weekend, working at one of my Scrapbooking Events I put together. I was 5 days over due and was scheduled to be induced on Monday.

I remember going to bed on Friday night, after midnight, and telling everyone I would see them in the morning. And I specifically said, "this baby isn't going anywhere".

It was now 1am and I was in bed at the hotel talking with my friend, Kim, who was also pregnant and in the bed next to mine. Then I decided, I better get up one more time to go to the bathroom in hopes I could make it through the night without having to get up again. As I started to roll over, I heard this "pop". Seriously, I heard it. I felt nothing, but heard something.

I then said, "Kim, I think my water just broke. That or I'm peeing the bed." Needless to say, I got up and RAN like crazy to the bathroom. Sure enough, my water did break and I was on my way to the hospital. It was an hour car ride to the hospital.

The easiest delivery I have ever had. The only child I didn't have to be induced with.

Emma was born on Saturday Morning right before 7am.

And yes, I was back at my Scrap weekend Sunday Morning around 11am, with Emma.

To celebrate her birthday this year, she invited a few girls from her Kindergarten. I picked them up from school and we went to McDonald's for Lunch. After some playing on the playground there, we went back home were Emma opened presents and then everyone had icecream.

We then headed for the park and played at the park for a few hours. Emma had a great day. But when I asked her if she had a great day, the answer was, "no". When I tried to find out why, she said because she didn't get candles on her cake.

Yes, I had made her a cake, but it didn't get finished in time. You can see her cake below, which I just finished today, two days late. But she was all smiles when she saw it. And we will be singing to her tomorrow when our company comes over. And I think then, her birthday will finally be complete.

Happy Birthday My Sweet Emma May!
