Happy 12th B-day

12 years ago today I gave birth to my second child, Megan Kathleen. Megan was born via scheduled c-section. I had an emergency c-section the first time around due to Josh's size and my doc highly recommended going this rout. As we have been doing some spring cleaning this summer, I came across an old journal where I had journal-ed my thoughts the night before Megan was born. I was nervous and anxious. I wondered if I would be able to parent two children. I had to giggle a little at that young, naive woman.

I remember thinking when I found out I was having a girl, that I would have a quiet, docile child. I was excited because although a pretty good kid, Josh was a typical boy and I was ready for some calm. Well this little girl was out to prove me wrong. Quiet is not a word I would use to describe Megan. When she was under 2 and her brother 3 years older, she taught him how to climb trees. So docile? not so much.

In the last 12 years Megan has brought so much joy to our family! She is amazingly creative. We won't long forget the contraption she made so she could turn on and off her bedroom light with out stepping a foot out of bed. She is funny too, always cracking a joke or coming up with some funny quip. Megan loves to be the center of attention and you can always count on her to entertain. You really can't help but love her because her beautiful heart stands out above all.

Megan has overcome much in her life. She was dx with sensory processing disorder. She has been through many hours of occupational therapy as well as a listening program. She has come so far, through these therapies, that I often forget that she has some special needs.

This past year Megan was on honor roll all three trimesters. She is blossoming in to quite a young lady. One, I am very proud of.

I'm so glad God choose you for our family Megan, H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y !
