How did we get here?
I went in at 1pm for my 37 week check and was told to come back at 3pm for pre-op formalities because, “we’re having this baby today.” I must have called the Hubs, but I was in such a state of denial, I barely remember it. They had told me my due date was June 12. This was May — what happened to my extra weeks? I don’t think I had even packed a bag. I must have thrown something together, though, because I was admitted shortly after 3pm and was wheeled into that frigid OR at 6:30.
We didn’t know if you were going to be a he or a she, so the anticipation was thick when the doctor held you up.
“Were you expecting a boy?” she asked, just a muffled voice floating over the drape in the operating room.
What? Was I expecting — “‘Cause it’s a girl!”
Our fiesty, funny, full of beans, fearless girl.
Happy Birthday, sweet Vivi girl, my little bunny-bunny.
