Happy Birthday to Emily!!!!

Wow! Our girls is 7 years old!

It is so hard to believe that Emily is 7 today!

It seems just like yesterday that our sweet baby was being born.

At 7:43 a.m. - Emily was born after 24 hours of labor. Although her labor was LONG.... when she was ready to be born...she decided to come out so fast that the nurses had to grab ANY doctor from the hall...Emily would not wait for our doctor (who arrived just minutes after Emily came into the world).

The nurses were telling me not to push...and I was not. But Emily had other plans. She couldn't wait...just like now. 7:43a.m....I became the momma of another sweet, baby girl.

Emily Lynn Diekemper.

Her middle name is the same as her big sister (and her mom). We let Katie choose the middle name. So Katie picked the best middle name that she could think of. Her own.

Emily weighed 9lb1oz. And was 19.5 inches long.

Little did Eric and I know, the awesome ride we were in for.

Emily is so sweet, genuine, caring, smart, sensitive and loving.

Happy Birthday, Emily! We are so glad that you are here!!!
