Crazy hair Hay

This picture of Hay was taken while I was pregnant with Wyatt. I had kind of forgotten about it until my mom recently asked for a copy of it. I remember that day very clearly. I was deathly ill with the pregnancy and was laying in bed just trying to keep anything down. The nausea was so overwhelming night and day...every second of every minute. Hay wanted to go outside and jump on the tramp so I laid in bed and watched her through the window. As you can tell she dressed herself in one of Em's dance outfits. It's on backwards and it obviously didn't fit her. It was probably her 10th outfit of the day. I never did her hair during those months because I was just too sick and I didn't really care.

She started rolling around on the tramp and that is what made her hair stick straight up. I remember laying in bed and debating if I should get up and take a picture of her knowing that it would bring on the pucking but I knew I had to capture this moment because who knows if it will ever happen again. So, I got out of bed grabbed the camera and took this one shot and then went and threw up. I think this picture will always be one of my favorites of Hay. I'm glad I took it. It puts a smile on my face. And in a way it reminds me of Wyatt and what I had to go through to get him here. It's amazing how a picture can bring back a moment so clearly in my mind.

What a sweet story to share. And she is such a cutie. The things we do to bring angel children here. I think we should get extra points for being so sick bringing them here, and sicker giving them back. In my oppinion:)
