It seems like just yesterday I was waiting to meet my Lil Pumpkin! I was already 10 days overdue when my doctor call me in to her office on a Saturday (yes, she called me!) and had me come in for monitoring. She determined that I was ready and that I should head over to the hospital right away. Several hours later Lil Pumpkin was born!

Our 5th little girl added to our family. I wondered what her personality would be like and if I could handle all the details of a newborn plus everything else.
One of Lil Pumpkin’s first outings was to our local co-op. A pre-teen girl came up to me and said with such sincerity, “I am so glad you had Lil Pumpkin!” Being a family that has more than 2 kids—that is not a comment I hear often. That comment blessed me so much! Now a year later I can’t imagine Lil Pumpkin not being a part of the family! She brings us so much joy!
Yes, this first year has gone by fast! I knew it would, but it still surprised me. My little baby is not so little anymore! Happy (belated) first birthday!
