Hello little one
Have you ever had so much to say that you really have no idea where to start? I mean, obviously you start at the beginning, but I guess that’s not really what I’m trying to say.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m not even sure how to talk about the amazingness (yes, I’m considering that a word) that has turned our lives upside down, inside out, backwards and forwards all at the same time. The amazingness that brings me to tears, takes my breath away and completely melts my heart. The amazingness that makes me want to be a better person and change the world.
Hello, little one.
She is the amazingness that has squeaked, squealed and smiled (I swear it’s not gas) her way into my heart like I never imagined.
I spent almost nine months wondering and dreaming about what it would be like to meet her, see what she looked like and how I would be as her mother.
I took bets as to when people thought she’d arrive and make a fourth to our family (we can’t leave out Bradley) and if she’d make it before Christmas.
I think we were all surprised when she arrived a week early, on December 15th at 6:08 am after a five hour labor that ended in a c-section because she was breech. Surprise! But that story, my friends, is for another day.
Welcome to the world, Harper Ann.
