You waited for him with all your heart, for the tiny person you created and carried inside you. You loved her before you knew her name. Your souls were connected before he opened his eyes.

Today she's different than she was yesterday, tomorrow he'll be bigger. Remember the anticipation, the joy, the little things. Birth happens once.
