5 years ago...


5 years ago at exactly 7:35 p.m....Lauren Ashton Perry was brought into our lives. She weighed 7 lbs. and 12 oz. and was a breeze to deliver. After having Jackson with no pain medication what so ever, having her with my beautiful epidural was the best thing ever! I pushed for 30 minutes with Jackson and pushed one time with her. My kiddos are only 21 months apart and at times I swear it could compare with having twins! Two in diapers, 2 in baby beds, 1 back in a bottle, then 2 with sippy cups. At times it was challenging, but I wouldn't change it for the world! She loves to color, loves to be a little "mama", LOVES her barbies and Hannah Montana! They say that Gemini's are known to be super sweet one minute and be so mad the next and this definately describes our little Lauren. It is amazing how much she has grown up over the last year, into a beautiful, smart, and sweet little girl...But..She will always be my "baby"!


Happy Birthday Lauren!
