Blast From The Past ~ Jessica's Birth Day

Yesterday was my dd Jessica's 23rd birthday.
The celebration will evidently be spread over a number of days.

Yesterday we played a board game, them played a little on the Wii, then she expectantly had to go out with her dad to get a dessert. Rachel had planned to make a cheesecake for her, as Jessica had requested. But, our oven decided to break. We had used it earlier that morning to make the blueberry french toast that Jessica wanted for breakfast. So... now no oven. Plan B. Go to Costco and get a dessert. She decided on their 4 layer, decadent, chocolate cake. Yummmm!  Then when she got back we watched some movies. Everyone was tired. Court and Rachel made the dinner Jessica had requested - Egg Rolls. Luckily they get cooked on the stove top, which is still working.

Today - Jessica and her Dad are doing a photo shoot at Longwood Gardens of Jessica in the white eyelet empire waist dress that she made for Easter. When she gets home she wants to watch chick flicks and eat some more of the snacks and treats from her birthday.

We still have not played the other board games she wanted to play. That may be done later today or another day... the Party goes on and on.

Jessica was born on a Sunday. She was an emergency C-section. We were both in jeopardy. We both could have died. God was gracious. We are both here. I am thankful. She weighed 4 lbs 11 oz. at birth and came home at 4 lbs. 8 oz. Tiny... but healthy and perfect! A miracle from God! I am sooo thankful.

 Here are some pictures from the day of her birth and a few days after, on the way home from the hospital, and at home. Enjoy!

At the hospital

Court's hand is there for size reference... she was soooo little.

On our way home
She barely fit in the car seat.
Her feet go to the divider, but not around it.

At home...

So tiny.
