As I prepare this post, I am reminded of exactly what I was doing this time 21 years ago…..I was in labour…. and in just 20 minutes or so I would become a mother for the first time!
It was a dream come true, after 3 years of trying, and on our 2nd IVF attempt, we had our beautiful baby girl.
Now 21 years later, the feelings are exactly the same!
On Saturday we had a family get together with my family and a few of Leah’s friends. It was a lovely evening and a fun time was enjoyed by all.
Leah asked for cup cakes as her birthday cake, so I made a giant cup cake.
This was before the guests arrived, it was a bit chilly and Greg is giving Corrie his dressing gown to keep him warm!
This is my family…
Corrie, Leah, me, Sharna, Shaun, Mum, Kate, Greg, Wanda, Anna, Leonie, Brock, Jordan and Greg.
Brock is at home after his first year at Washington State University where he is on a basketball scholarship, so it was a great opportunity to get that elusive family photograph, the last one was taken Christmas 2008.
Leah has grown into a beautiful young woman, who is about to become a mother herself, and I am looking forward to sharing the next stage of her life.
Congratulations Leah! I love you!
Thanks for visiting.
