I seem to get giddy over Valentine's Day each year. Of course, it helps that we have a Valentine of our very own living here who'll be turning 7 this year!
I knew I was scheduled for a cesarean section on the 16th of February, 2001. Loving Valentine's Day as I did and knowing a day or two difference in my new baby's birth probably wouldn't be a huge thing, I asked (okay - begged) my doctor to schedule it for the 14th. He didn't answer me, just smiled. I was squealing with joy when I received a notice in the mail of my c-section schedule. Yippee!! A Valentine's Baby! I had so much fun picking out papers to make her announcements.
I'll admit, there have been a few times that I've had second thoughts about picking that particular day because I've missed out on having it to myself. But I'd have to say, it's all worth it!
