The day of Stella’s birth was Tuesday, May 31, 2011. The previous day was Memorial day and we had celebrated our third anniversary over the weekend (although the actual date of our anniversary is May 31). I had been waking up the past couple nights VERY early in the morning and feeling all anxious. So, I decided to straighten my hair, ha (what else would you do at 4am?). I always wanted to be ready in case today was the day! I had been working from home for the past couple weeks since I was put on bed rest for high blood pressure. Silly me, I tried to assure my doctor (who happens to be the most fabulous doctor ever!) that my blood pressure was only high because I was having a stressful time at work. Apparently it doesn’t matter WHY your blood pressure is high. It only matters that it IS! Since I was up so early I started piddling around, feeding the dogs and getting the house straightened (if you know me – my house stays in a constant state of order).
