I can't believe Lovelyn is turn 9 years old this weekend.  How the heck did that happen?  I swear it was just yesterday that I was carrying around this horrible secret about how I couldn't get pregnant.  It took us 4 years to get prego!!!!  Everyone would always ask when I was going to have kids.  It would break my heart to have to B.S. people when I was so sad and broken inside.  I wanted to be a Mom so freaking bad.  And then just like most of the stories you hear.  When we finally gave up on the drugs, doctors appointments and funky voodoo stuff I was trying at home....BAM prego!  Can't believe I have been someone's Mom for 9 years now.  Of course being a parent is crazy hard work but I love that girl more than life itself and I'm thankful everyday that I am blessed to have her in my life!
