Two years ago at 8:37pm, Nisha (Nisha’s Birth Story by Pam) was born. What a ride it has been since! I was not sure when I had her how I could love two kids. After all, I had just gotten used to loving one. My older daughter was a mere 21 months old when Nisha was born. Of course, she has made loving her quite easy. Initially, it was a rough few months and along the way we have had our trials and tribulations. Today, two years later, my two daughters play together nicely and have fun. Simply put, they can’t live without each other.
This past weekend, we kept her birthday party- a low key mall play area get together with our close friends. We cut her cake and she was so excited! I just thought this was the perfect moment and am so glad it was captured on digital media: My older daughter feeding my younger one cake – absolutely priceless! In life, there are so many moments you want to freeze. This was one of them.
As I think back today, 2 years ago, at right about this time, I was 1 hour away from pushing my 2nd daughter out. We did not know the gender of either of our kids when we had them. So, it was quite the surprise both times. It has been an amazing journey with both our daughters and as they grow, we find ourselves growing too! Happy Birthday, Nisha- you are and continue to be one of my most perfect moments!
