And now she is two!

My client was more than 42 weeks over due and Gabrielle’s birthday was fast approaching. I knew I’d have to pass on the birth and get my back-up to fill in if she went into labour on the same day as I gave birth to my sweet babe, but as it turns out, I got both my birth and my girl’s birthday party. All I had to give up was my sleep.

I had such good help to pull off this part sansĀ  sleep. My mother-in-law did fabulous cupcakes and cleaned my house. My husband got the house tidy and blew up all the balloons. Some friends brought food. And Voila! Party time.

We had a very excited little girl on our hands.
