She would tell you most of her birthday gifts were wrapped in Christmas paper!
But I can't begin to tell you how much that first Christmas with my newborn baby girl meant to me.
I had a C-section and back in those days you stayed in the hospital a full week with a C-section. So
I spent my Christmas in the hospital. And you know what, I have nothing but good memories!
Santa came by to visit and brought me a big red stocking to take the new baby home in. I still have that stocking today......somewhere in a box with Kelly's little shoes, silver teething ring and her favorite little rubber giraffe that she cut her first tooth on. I kept almost everything about her. Every doctor's appointment where the doctor wrote on his special paper how much she weighed, how long she was and what new foods I could introduce to her that particular month.
Everything was special to me..........just like everything she did as she grew up into the beautiful young woman she is today. I will never get over the "specialness" of having my first sweet baby at this time of the year.
And now that we have a special baby, Harper, in our lives, we are equally excited for Miss Hollis to make her way into the world and more importantly, into our hearts!!
Happy Birthday Kelly! You have been nothing but a blessing to me all your life and I just thank the Lord and love you dearly!
