Princess…words cannot describe what I’m feeling and how I have been feeling since you made your spectacular arrival. “Love” doesn’t seem to adequately describe it. It’s not a strong enough word.
I knew you’d come early…I just didn’t know when. You decided on Friday October 28, 2011.
After laboring for around 17-18 hours (active labor for 7.5 hours) and pushing for just under 2 hours, you made your birthday debut.
At 10:38pm you and I and daddy changed, forever. All 7 pounds and 20 1/4 inches of you emerged from my body. I’ve never experienced something as magical, life altering, and momentous. I am a changed person because of you.
I will write about your incredible birth very soon. I don’t want to forget one minute detail about the happiest day of my life and the day we finally met face to face.
I love you sweet princess! Welcome to the world 🙂
