13 is the age Morgyn turns today. Where has 13 years gone? Where did my scrawny baby with the long arms and legs go?

It seems like eons ago that I woke up the morning of Aug 17 not thinking this was the DAY. It took me about an hour to figure out that no I wasn't peeing myself, my water was trickling LOL. So off to the hospital we went. Morgyn's Dad was at work, so he met us there. I was lucky for the 1st 4 hours I was in labour I felt no contractions. When they started I was like um I can't do this. But then it kinda went fast, I had a shot of demerol and relief. When that wore off they offered me the gas mask, that was 2 hours of unaware bliss. How sad does that sound? The only thing that I remember from that time was trying to get my feet unstuck from under the covers LOL. Then I remember the pushing, and the Dr saying do you want something to numb you? I was like it's not that bad (yeah delusions huh?). And then she was here this 7lbs 8oz baby looking up at with the most bright brown eyes I had ever seen. That is how she became Morgyn, it was either that or Rebecca. But those eyes did it, my baby book said Morgyn meant bright eyes of the sea. It was a shoo in.

We grew together those 1st years Morgyn and I. Her Dad and I didn't stay together as a couple but we stayed friends and we still get along well to this day. It has always just worked the best for Morgyn that we do. She also inherited Bruce as a Dad, he came into her life when she was 2. Morgyn doesn't remember a time that he wasn't with us. She lucked out there, well we both did. Bruce loves Morgyn as if she was his by blood, and no one could ever tell him or her she wasn't.

So here we are 13 years later and she has crept up to be taller that me already. My shoes are too small on her. She is going to be a tall girl that's for sure. I love watching her grow into a young woman. The teen attitude will likely kill me, but then I remember my parents survived 4 of us girls LOL.

So Happy 13th Birthday to my sweet girl. Sniff sniff, time goes all to fast.

Happy Birthday Morgyn! I loved the story about her bright brown eyes! My oldest just turned 18. And now she is off to community college. You'd think it was in another state with how often I see her. ONCE in the last two weeks! Hug her now! Time really DOES fly too quickly.
