Rachel is 3!!

Today my BABY is 3 years old! 3 years ago on June 18th, 2009, Arnold and I were headed to the hospital to have her. She was breech, and they couldn't get her flipped (believe me, they tried-- and it HURT!) so I had to have a c-section. Rachel was born at 2:55 PM on a Thursday afternoon. She came out BUTT first.. it was so incredibly funny. She has been stubborn and silly since day one ;) She weighed 8lbs and 3ozs and the first thing you noticed were her big pinchable cheeks! They could even see them on the ultrasound people!!!! At the time we didn't know she would be our last baby but now we know we are done, due to health issues and other factors.

It is sad for me to say my youngest is now an independent "big girl", running around, talking in sentences I actually understand, and trying to master drinking out of a regular cup! I have one more year with her at home with me before she starts preschool.. I don't even want to think about that day yet, I know I will be bawling! Rachel is my little buddy and my sidekick. We always have so much fun together. She will still climb up in my lap to be rocked, and I love that :)
