Happy 13th Birthday, Unicorn!

It is hard to believe that it has been 13 years since Unicorn made her "exciting" entrance into this world! I wish I remembered the day but, I was unconscious and having seizures due to eclampsia. She was born 7 weeks early via emergency C-section. I went to sleep Monday, February 28, 2000 and the next thing I know it is Thursday, March 2, 2000, I am in the hospital and no longer pregnant. Unicorn was born Tuesday, February 29, 2000 at 5:47 pm. She was 3 pounds 11 ounces and 16 inches long. We were both in pretty bad shape but, we pulled through!

Thoughts from Unicorn
I want to be remembered for being kind.
The most interesting thing about me is I was born on Leap Day.
What makes me special is my red hair.

  1. Wow, she was such a low birthweight, and yet she looks healthy in the picture. What a miracle! How crazy that must have been, to wake up no longer pregnant and not remembering anything! Happy birthday, Marissa!

    1. Thank you for stopping by Kathryn! It was VERY crazy and yes, we were very blessed that she was very healthy for a baby born that small!
