18 💁🏻

She's actually been 18 for 2 months... I'm a little behind 🤷🏼‍♀️
  1. She wasn't exactly "planned"
    I was 19; he was 21 - he was cute & manipulative. I knew I didn't need him around; he didn't really want to stay 🤷🏼‍♀️
  2. The sonogram didn't reveal her gender, but I had hoped for a little girl that looked like me..
    Like I said, he was cute, but I didn't want to look at "him" everyday 🤷🏼‍♀️ My mom pointed out that the "baby" had my face profile in the sonogram
  3. She was 11 days overdue
    I.was.huge! Didn't gain excessive weight, but my baby bump was like a mountain! 🤷🏼‍♀️ she came out weighing 8lb 12oz!!! 😳
  4. She came naturally on the day the docs were to induce me
    2:30am is when the back labor began / I didn't know at the time-it took 2 hours of tossing/turning and a hot shower to realize 🤷🏼‍♀️
  5. She's just like me
    Which is good & bad at the same time 🤷🏼‍♀️
  6. Her bond with my hubby (not her biological father) is AMAZING
    He's the only father she knows! We got together when she was 3. She called him Mikey until the day we got married; then he was immediately Dad. They're relationship is exactly what we all need! 🤷🏼‍♀️
  7. She's awesome!
    Though we may fight like sisters, she's taught me so much through the years. 🤷🏼‍♀️ She's smart & beautiful & caring & just awesome!
  8. She's off on her "own"
    College looks good on her 😊 Though I hear she's ruined clothes in the laundry 🤷🏼‍♀️
  9. Here we are!
