By the way, since the journaling is such an integral part of the above layout, I'll share it here: On October 2nd, 2004, I couldn't help thinking that, on this day, everything had gone wrong. It started by daddy and I being sent home from the hospital the first time we went. As a result, by the time we went back, I had progressed much further then I would have liked without an epidural (I was 7cm dilated before I got one). My labor with you went on and on and on for a total of 25 hours. I pushed for 3 of those hours with nothing to show for it. When I was told that I was going to need a C-Section, I sobbed. I sobbed because I was living my worst case scenario - a long labor, hours of pushing and still ending up with a C-Section. I sobbed because I was disappointed and felt let down by my body. I wanted to have you the way I was meant to - not in an operating room. I sobbed because I was scared to death. Yet, in one moment's time, "the day that everything had gone wrong" became one of the best days of my life. You were here. You were healthy. And I was head over heels in love.
I always feel like I don't really have a scrapping style - i've never been able to define it when people ask (can anyone help me out here? ;-). It's interesting to me, though, that although these layouts were done a long time ago, I feel like the style of the layouts (whatever that may be, lol) is still what I do today.
So it's Friday - whoo hoo! We're spending the evening with my parents and bro/family, which is always fun. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend filled with lots of good times :-)
