Belle is 9 years old today!!!

I remember May 22, 2005 quite well.  We had to get up early and be at the hospital by 6am.  Miss Belle was breech and I was scheduled for a C-Section that morning.  We tried everything to get her to turn around as I truly did not want to have a C-Section.  But, she was determined to stay put with her head lodged under the right side of my rib cage!  Unlike when Natasha was born I was unable to hold my sweet Belle for two hours while I was in recovery after the surgery.  I remember how upset I was but Daddy stayed with her until we could all be together as a family.

Our 2nd daughter is vibrant and full of life.  She absolutely LOVES anything crafty and has an incredible imagination.  She can see something or read about it in a book and off she goes to try to build it.  It is truly amazing how creative she is and if she sees a need she tries to fill it.  Belle is very sensitive and caring and just adores her littlest baby sister.  She is a big help with the baby and is always willing to hold Katherine.

Belle is doing very well in school and she currently wants to be a pediatrician when she grows up.  We are VERY proud of her and love having her as part of our family.

Daddy and I took her to California Pizza Kitchen for her birthday dinner and then we played a round of mini glow in the dark golf at the mall.  Afterwards, we enjoyed a couple of cookies before heading for home.

Sunday we are having family and friends over to celebrate her 9th birthday.  Wait until you see her cake!!!

We love you Belle!
