The Day Everything Changed

June 14, 2008

I find myself looking back a lot these days. A lot has changed over the past year. But then again, a year ago today EVERYTHING changed.
I don't think Katie cried through all her pain and everything. I, on the other hand, cried like a little girl but what else is new. I changed my first diaper. After three days of labor, Katie finally got a little rest. And a little drink. What? We had a lot to celebrate! I found a new capacity to comfort. And Katie finally got to meet the little person she had grown to know so intimately yet never actually seen. She had a lot to be proud of. And so did I. We finally had our little girl and we were a family now. I fell in love with her immediately. We all fell in love with her immediately.
Juniper Rose Detrano, happy birthday.
