Do you remember

where you were or what you were doing at 6:18am, 10 years ago?? I do!!
this little cherub was born.

She was 2 weeks and 1 day late.
Had to be induced first lot of gel was around 8am, nothing...
the second lot of gel was around 7pm, which worked! the amount of pain made me sick.
contraction upon contraction.
I had the gas, I had the pain killers and then had an epidural and still had to wait 12 hours before they said I was ready.
She still needed encouraging out, with the help of the suction cap.
And there she was Little miss Megan.
She was born with skin missing of one of her knees.
24 hours later she was sent to intensive care, where she spent her first week, looking like a chubba baby in amongst all the premmies! And this was where we first learnt about our life with EB.
10 years on and she still does things in her own time, in her own way and doesn't like being told that life isn't all about her. She is as determined now as she was then, walking and talking at 8.5 months. She is still as gorgeous as she was the day she was born. She still teaches us how to be parents, daily! She has smart, she is clever and she is ten!

Happy birthday Megan!
