It's Melody's Birthday!!!!!!!!

It's my little girl's birthday today.  She turned 10 at 1:34am.  It's hard for me to think that she is now in double digits when this time 10 years ago we were both struggling to stay alive.

Melody was born at 34 weeks but stopped growing at 31 weeks.  I had pre-eclampsia and my placenta tore off the wall and she was born with no vitals.  It took them 17 minutes to revive her and she had 3/4 of her head bruised from a forceps into the uterus delivery.  She spent 2 weeks in the Special Care Nursery and here is a picture of her at a day old.

My sweet bunny at 1, she always loved smiling and pulling up grass in the yard.

2 years old and looking extra sweet as the flower girl at a friend's wedding!!

She loved bubbles, singing and looking for bugs at age 3.

Here she is living up to her name at the Ontario Science Center!!!  Look at my little 4 year old rockstar.  hehe

5 and being silly as always with a pullup on her head.  She loves to make people laugh and it always pulling silly stunts and goofy faces.

Only 6 and already learning to drive ;P......

She found treasure at the beach in Muskoka the summer she was 7.

This kid has some seriously long legs, she really is all legs.  This was at her 8th birthday party at nana and papa's house.

Here Melody is a month after she had her hair cut in honour of her sister Ruby.  She was able to donate 13 inches to Locks of Love.  She has such a great smile.  Here she is at her 9th birthday party.

I love you sweet Melody.  You are such a wonderful little girl and I'm looking forward to the next 10 years and our late night talks about the Lord.  Melody is also celebrating being a Christian for 6 years today.  Happy birthday sweetheart!!!!!
