The day "before". Last day without a child!
I woke up at 3 am and she was there at 7:13 am. Thanks, Helen, for not giving me any trouble.
Can you imagine? They kept me 4 nights in the hospital. She was born Monday morning and they discharged us Friday morning. May be it was because any relatives were 4000+ miles away? May be it was because there had been a blizzard outside? They questioned us whether we could drive into a garage etc etc. -5F degrees is cold. Or maybe those were just the good ol' days?
Dinner on the last evening before discharging! They served it to the new parents with real tablecloth and linen napkins, flowers and wine and the words: " this might be the last cozy dinner for a while for you"!
Probably 3 or 4 weeks old. Isn't she cute?
So many memories over the years. Hope we can make many more together.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HELEN! Love you so much.
