Happy Birthday, Heather


February 14 may be Valentines Day for most of you, but in our home it's even more important. It's Heather's birthday! I always tease her that she made me go through the worst and longest labor of all 3 kids just so she could be born on Valentines Day. I was in labor with her for 24 hours and she was born at 12:09 am - making me wait till just after midnight. Then again, the long labor may have had something to do with the fact that she weighed 9'6"!
Once she was born, she was an easy baby and remains easygoing to this day.
Happy Birthday Heather - We love you!
PS - Happy Birthday to my friend Diane, too!

Happy Birthday, Heather! She's a beautiful girl, Mari. Hubby's brother also has his birthday on Valentine's Day. I guess it isn't so unusual after all.

Happy Birthday, beautiful Heather!

I almost had a Valentines baby. I was in labor Valentines evening, but Jeremy also chose to wait till just after midnight too; thus a Feb. 15 birthday.

Happy Birthday Heather! My Annais' birthday is V-day too, so we celebrate V-day on the 13th, so he can have his day to himself. He was also a big boy weighing in at 9lbs 11oz and 22 inches, he was delivered by c-section.

Happy Birthday to Heather! Loved reading her story. Since I am a card merchandiser, I am always helping people find the valentine/birthday cards to buy. Hope her day is special in every way.
