The Baby Is Ten

Ten years ago this week, this little girl entered the world.

If I had known then what I know now, her blanket would have had sequins and feathers on it.

I had a C-section and had to wait quite a while before they would let me hold her. The nurses had whisked her out of the surgery room while they sewed me up. Kerry took pictures of her then brought them to me so I could see her being cleaned up.

When I was finally out of recovery, they took me to my room and finally, finally brought my baby to me.

I looked into those beautiful, dark eyes, held her tiny fingers........and threw up all over the top of her head.

True story.
