This day...

started very early this morning...


Today

But the ironic thing is...
this day started very early (about an hour earlier)
18 years ago today...

Of course, I spent a good part of that day at home in labor
before heading to the hospital at 4:30 PM...

my baby

and welcoming our first born at 9:26 PM
(2 weeks early, 8lb 4oz, no medication!)


Me and my baby

And why should this early morning be any less exciting???
I started the day with some art...
My baby is 18 today!

and...   
a brief 4 AM visit from this fellow...

Yes, this was flying around in our house early this morning
(yes, later Mr. U got it between the window and screen,
 Nature Boy was able to get it into a plastic animal carrier 
and we escorted it off the U family premises!)

and woohoo!
My first run in about 2 weeks...

Good morning
(can you say vacation? heat wave? lazy?)

No...
this day was not just an ordinary day!

Me on the floor
Happy 18th Birthday to my sweet girl!!!

(and it is Day #27 of "30 Days of Get Your Art On" too!)
