20 years ago today I became a mom with the birth of our first born Natalia. She came 4 days early and I needed 6 hours at my job in order to get a 1600 dollar bonus. I was bound and determined I was going to go to work even though I kept having these pains every 9 minutes. Despite being in pain I jumped in the shower and after getting out I put half of my makeup on. At this point I realized I wasn't going to make it to work because my contractions were about 6 minutes apart. The midwife was called she came and she confirmed I was in labor and going to have a baby. OH MY! I will admit I was a little freaked out. A mom? Oh My Goodness! Sure enough a few short hours later she made her entrance into the world. I can't believe it has been 20 years today. Happy Birthday Natalia. We love you SO much and we are so grateful that God gave you to us. We can't believe you aren't a teenager anymore and we are looking forward to seeing how God blesses you in your 20's.
