It was about this time 7 years ago that I was having to stop and breathe through some contractions, and was starting to think about calling the neighbour in to look after my Nat.
I was a little concerned as my first labour only took 3 hours, and we had an hours drive to the hospital. Through the middle of nowhere (from Mitchell to Roma)
Little did I know I had hours.
Whilst driving to the hospital we almost hit the biggest kangaroo I have ever seen. Throughout each contraction for the rest of the birth, I would close my eyes and focus on this freaking great roo. He became my 'focal point' LOL He was seriously all I saw each contraction.
Well, the kangaroo and the happy gas....
We got to the hospital at around midnight, and my baby Charlotte was born at 6.30am.
And she was perfect. 8lb 5oz of perfection.
Our family became 4. This is my two babies meeting for the first time.
And by 'two babies' I really mean two babies...look at Nat, she didn't even have hair!?!?!?
Yeah, they were some busy days and nights. I can barely remember them.
I do remember how gorgeous Charlotte smelled. How snuggly she was and how wonderful it was to wrap her in a million bunny rugs and just cuddle with her :)
And now my little button is 7. I cannot believe how fast the time goes.
So she is 7 and still practically perfect in every way :)
Happy birthday Charlotte. Hope your day is as amazing as you are!
