Eight years ago, on this day, My very first born made her grand debut at 10:40 p.m. weighing in at a whopping 5 pounds and 15 ounces measuring 19 1/2 inches long. It was a loud stormy rainy night and I remember it like it was yesterday.
I had a very short labor (4 hours), got an epidural before I felt a single contraction, and pushed you out in 5 pushes :) When you were first born there were tons of family members all waiting to meet you and hold you and love you...and then they left. It was just the two of us and that's when our bonding began...
Big D, You were my first love. I didn't understand the meaning of love at first sight until the nurse handed you to me and we met eyes for the first time. I knew as soon as I looked at you that I LOVED you and would do ANYTHING to protect you.
It's amazing to me how much you've changed. You went from being a little pink skinned, black fuzzy headed bundle of love, to a tall and slender little girl (with real hair!) that has exceeded all of my expectations of being the oldest and a big sister :)
I love you my sweet Devarooster! You're my baby girl. My very first born. My first true love. My first reason to live. And my new favorite 8 year old! Happy Birthday lovie!
Lots of Hugs and Kisses,
