From the time my feet hit the floor in the morning. Its all about Maggie!
I was told after my son Baylen was born (9lbs 11oz) That I would not be be able to carry a child full term again. I "had" weighed 105 lbs. Carrying this heavy baby had put a strain on my uterus. I was 30 at the time.

Well at 40 I discovered I was pregnant! How did that happen????? Ok... I guess once in 6 months can qualify. I was so happy and sick.
I should have known a storm was brewing. I couldn't eat anything. I couldn't even drink a coke without running to the bathroom.
9 long months and I made it.
When I first seen her. I was shocked. She didn't have the white hair my son had. It was black! Where did she come from? Not me. I could hear my mother in law " All the Latona babies have blonde hair" My husband says I said "I swear she's yours"
I don't remember saying that. But I do remember thinking it! lol
Needless to say, Her hair all fell out, I had a bald girl. It came back in the color of mine as a child. A strawberry blonde. She also looks like my husband(Thank God) After a colic st ricked 4 months she turned out to be my my life saver! I don't know how I would survive without her
So it's ok that I cant get any housework or sewing done. I just need to take a deep breath and think.
Where would I be without you.. My darling Maggie. I really dont know. I know she is my gift. A gift that told me it's ok to love again. Life goes on after your parents are gone. That maybe she is as mean as a striped a$$ snake. Because my mother is in there. She always said she'd give me a sign. I realize now she is. Everyday she shows herself. Funny I just figured it out..
