Happy three years of life, Adriana! A blog for my Adri.

It's just surreal that you, my first born babe is already three years old. It feels like it was just months, days, weeks, ago that I was in labor with you for over 24 hours! You always love a grand entrance, so why am I surprised? :) Your entrance into this world was grand. Of course it had to be with you coming in at 11 pounds and 15 ounces (yes, 12 pounds pretty much, yes vaginally, no c-section here) and 23 1/2 inches long. The scale 23 1/2 inches long Now that we have that settled, I can move right along. :) You were the celebrity of the maternity ward. Not only the largest, but the most beautiful baby in the nursery. You had so many visitors that didn't even know you! Nurses and random people visiting other moms in the hospital. Everyone wanted to see not only the largest baby they have ever seen but the most beautiful as well (yes, they said this, I am not just sayin' ) Adri You are my ever loving social butterfly. You are my little attention lover. You are my camera hog and my self-proclaimed "pretty-pretty" princess that loves Thomas the tank engine. Adrianasmile S4020584 (2) You brighten my days and grant me forever smiles. You talk to everyone; however, sometimes I understand that you need to warm up. Just depending on your little mood. Your are INDEED female, so you are excused! adriana5 adriana1 022 Your love for your baby sister is priceless. You two make a great team! adrilouallesue sistersforever You are my girlie girl and my tomboy, all wrapped into one precious gift. You surprise me with the things you say and the things that you learn so quickly. You are definitely my little Einstein. My little model. Picture 028 Adri at Easter My little "get-in-the-dirt-and-get-dirty" tomboy. You are everything that a mom could possibly want for her daughter to be. You are you, the love of my life! My love for you will always be strong and my heart with always be with you, no matter what else happens! We will conquer the world together and overcome anything. I love you Adriana Laura. I look forward to our life together! You complete me with your shining spirit and beauty. cupcake Love always- Mama adrianamommy1

Thanks Ivana! Yes, she was a big one. Big and beautiful for that matter. They estimated her to weight around 9 or 10 pounds, but oops. :)

My second born was 10 pounds on the dot, but she would have been 12 pounds if I had gone full term!
