My Tukker Bear's Birthday

Today at 3:11 pm my sweet baby girl had been in this world for two years. It has been a crazy two years that has both flown by and crept slowly along with ever lasting moments. I remember when she was born I had no idea how to feel. My mom promised me that if I waited to give birth until she got home from West Virginia that she would do the hard part for me. When it came down to the last moment I remembered that even though I had waited for my mommy I was still going to have to do this myself. I was scared to death. It was a seven hour labor that felt like a hundred years. Not because it was hard or stressful or even all that painful. It lasted forever because as badly as I wanted my body back I also wanted my baby to stay inside where she would be safe and warm and I could have her all to myself. The moment finally arrived where I saw her beautiful fat little face...I felt like I was frozen in time. I was laughing and kinda crying. I remember my mom taking my hands and putting them on my babies skin. She was saying, "feel her Heather. Feel how warm she is. She is all yours." I felt scared to touch her for some reason. It didn't seem real. As soon as I snapped out of it and the world begun to spin again I couldn't stop kissing her and holding her tight to me. She was so smooth and had beautiful olive skin, she was warm and smelled good and she loved me and I loved her. More than anything :) For that first year she wasn't my baby she was my best friend and my side kick. At times I felt like she was all I had and at times I enjoyed sharing everything I had with her. She would cry and scream ALL THE TIME and I still wanted to smile even when I wanted to cry. After she got through her screaming phase she became the smiley baby that every one loved. She is gorgeous and funny and full of character. I can't believe she is two now. The second year of her life went much faster than the first and now she is entering her terrible twos! But when she is not having a meltdown, she is funny and so smart and a blast to just be with...and an awesome big sister to her baby that she loves almost to much. Here are some of my favorite pics over the last two amazing years. Enjoy!
