This picture was taken around Christmas in 2005, of me and my baby girl, Katelyn. I longed so much for a daughter for so very long. It was a very long road leading up to her birth. I have one son born in 96, who spent most of his childhood as an only child. It took us 7 years and many miscarriages to finally give birth to twin boys. We had planned to wait for a couple years before trying again, but God had another plan for us. 9 months after my twins were born, I found out I was pregnant again. How crazy is that?? I had so much trouble for so very long, and then to be surprised in this way?? When the ultrasound told us it was a girl, I couldn’t believe it. It just all seemed so unreal. I couldn’t even bring my self to take the tags off her clothing. When she was born, the very first thing out of my mouth was “Is it a girl?” Everyone in the delivery room chuckled at me and said “Yes, a beautiful baby girl!” And she is, beautiful in every way.
Katelyn turns 3 in just a couple of weeks, and I’m feeling rather nostalgic. I find myself drawn more to scrap pages of her and the changes she’s going through right now. She is growing up so very fast, that I would like to freeze time for a bit. Maybe that’s what scrapping is all about for me, freezing time so I can hold it close and cherish it a bit longer.
I used 4 of Randi Oh designs kits to scrap this page. They all coordinate very well together, each adding a little something special to the page.
