Happy Birthday Macy!

This funny, sweet, often quiet (except when she's not) and sometimes goofy girl (who can be very stubborn too) is now 9! How did that happen? It seems like just yesterday that I gave birth to her at the Maternity Center-a stand alone birthing center with just Trent and our midwife present. I remember feeling so strong and powerful after that experience! On our way home a couple of hours later, I called my friends on the West coast to let them know the good news and they were sure I was calling to say it was false labor. They couldn't believe I had already given birth and was on my way home. That birthing center is now gone due to high malpractice insurance rates in our state-so sad! It was my first out of hospital birthing experience and it was so wonderful! Macy loves to tell people she has never been in the hospital. When they say, "Oh, yes you have. You were born in one." She slyly smiles and says, "No, I wasn't!".

Happy Birthday to my sweet girl!
