"Four years ago tonight, Daddy and I were wondering if we would get to meet our new baby tomorrow. We were so excited to meet the little person growing inside my belly.
The next morning, I knew that you were ready to come out.
Daddy and I went to the hospital and the doctor told us, 'Today, you are going to be parents!'
And Grandma and Papa came and Saba and Safta called on the telephone a lot to check and see if you had arrived yet. And I watched the Yankee game from the bed while we all waited for you.
And then at 6:24, out you came! The doctor put you on my belly and said 'It's a girl!' and Daddy and I cried. "
Four years ago today I became a mom. And today my big girl is old enough to ask for and understand the story of her arrival (in general terms, although I am betting Little Miss Precocious would actually want to hear the gory details).
I love you LP. Happy Birthday.
