Six years ago today, early in the morning, I shared in the most amazing experience of my life, aside from the births of my 2 children. My precious Ivy arrived in the wee hours, while her brothers slept in the next room. It could not have played out more perfect. I was never so proud of my daughter. Just the thought of a Home Birth in the beginning makes you a little nervous, but, after researching and learning about how safe they are, the nerves were gone. I was so surprised I was so calm. Steph knew what she was doing and I had so much faith in her. The memory is still fresh in my mind and I hope it will be when I'm 90 years.
I mailed her presents and she received them 3 days before her birthday. Grampy and I watched her open them up via Skype. She was so happy with all her treasures. The next day she was surprised with a Barbie Dream House from her mom & dad. She has been celebrating for 4 days now.
Today, I send Love and Birthday wishes to Ivy LaRue Precourt. She wears a smile like a happy sunshine. She looks just like her mommy did at her age. I see big and great things ahead for this energetic little girl. I can't wait to play Barbie's and cards with her next month when I go for a visit. I am taking extra vitamins to keep up with her.
