Mom and Dad met at a party when they were only 14 years old! Daddy left for the states shortly after dating Mom. Mom was so excited after taking the pregnancy test that she woke Dad up at 6 am to ask if he could see the faint line on the pregnancy test. Guess what? He could! On the sonogram, sweet little Demi didn’t want Mom and Dad to find out if she was a boy or a girl. She kept her legs together, so it took a bit of prodding and jiggling before Mom and Dad were happy to find out they were having the first baby girl on Dad’s side of the family. Once they knew they were having a girl, the name was an easy choice for Mom and Dad. Demi is named after her paternal grandmother, Dimitra.
Nursery prep went smoothly with Dad doing the work and Mom supervising from a chair. Under Mom’s direction, furniture was assembled and wall decals put up and everything was prepared for Demi’s arrival.
Mom’s water broke at 2:30 in the morning and Dad didn’t believe her. He thought she was joking around. Mom went through quite a bit of labor, but Miss Demi decided she didn’t want to make an appearance and Mom ended up needing a C-section. When Demi was born, Dad got a little nervous because she was so swollen…and big; 9 lbs!
When Mommy and Daddy first saw Demi, they felt complete.
