Now and Then

March 5th, 2003
5:30 am

I was asleep when the phone rang next to my bed. I was very tired, and had to go to work in just a little while, but it woke me up.
It turned out to be my pregnant sister in law;

She: Good morning D. Happy Birthday!

Me sleepily: (thinking: Why does she have to call me so early to tell me! This can wait at least for the sun to come up!): Hey thanx M. we enty tayyeba.

She: listen D, I am going to have my baby right now. Can you please come over to watch the kids?

Me, fully awake: Now?!! but you are early! oh my, I will be right over!!!

so I got up the earliest ever that I got up on my birthday, and drove over to her house. Poor M, she had been having contractions for a while before she called, but waited for the last minute to call me , so as to let me sleep! When I arrived, she was already dressed, and she and my brother were at the door. so I kissed her, and wished her all the best, and went inside to look on the kids who were still sleeping.

They woke up and were very excited about the whole thing. They are having a new sister... and they get to skip school that day because of it! ( That is a cool excuse isn't it. I am sorry I could not come to school yesterday... my mom was having a baby!)

I was excited about it too. I really liked the baby being born on my birthday. It was like a beautiful birthday present. A new niece. Who will always share my birthday.

4 hours later, baby H was born. I did not get to see her till the next day though Because I had to stay with the children. But when she came home, she was such a cute little bundle!

Three years later, March 5th, 2006
It is our birthday. I go to work, then finish and go over to a toy store. H's brthday is tonight. and whenever someone calls me to see what I am doing on my birthday.... I tell them I am shopping for my niece's birthday! I got her a doll house.

She kind of took over my birthday really... but I really do not mind at all. I love her so much. Besides, they always blow the candles for me too after they sing for her.

Now she is three years old, and I can't believe that 3 years ago she wasn't even here. they do grow so fast.
