Hello little one, welcome to the world. Let me tell you a little bit about the day you were born. You are now 4 years old and a lot has happened and changed, but on the day you were born everything changed.
On the day you were born two people became parents.
the day you were born I cried. I cried out of happiness, and pain. I
cried with anticipation and agony. I wept and screamed and thought the
night would never end. I'm not sure this will not change for many more
years to come.
On the day you were born I wished for
many things to be different. I wished for you not to be born in that
hospital, and I wished for you to have waited in my belly for a few more
weeks, even after being in labor for 10 days. Then I saw you, and I was
so happy you were here. Nothing else mattered.
day you were born I learned what love is. I learned what it means to
love someone with all of my being and for the rest of my life. I know
that I will never love anyone the way I love you. Loving you changes
all the time.
On the day you were born it was hot, it
was so very hot. The Santa Ana's had come in and it was over 100
degrees. I was sweating like I had never sweat before but I walked
around that hospital with two gowns on facing both front and back,
supporting myself on the IV stand and walking as fast as I could to get a
glimpse of you.
On the day you were born, you came too
early. You were not expected for another 3 weeks. After I locked
myself in the bathroom and yelled at everyone, I was laid on my back and
felt you moving down inside of me. I didn't think I could do it. I
didn't think I would ever see your face. I didn't think I had the
energy to keep going. I didn't think I could. But i did. I wanted to
see you and so I pushed you out.
On the day you were
born I felt empty on the inside after carrying you for 9 months. I
heard your cry and saw them care for you on the side. I heard your
Daddy's excited voice and his hands holding mine. I saw your tiny body
all white and pink. I reached out for you as they put you on top of
me. Your face full as an apple and your juicy legs all cramped up. You
black head of spiky hair was something everyone talked about.
the day you were born, it was midnight. You crossed over to a new day
which made the day feel like a week. I couldn't sleep and wanted to be
with you all the time. I hated not being near you and not being able to
walk for hours to hold you.
On the day you were born, I
became your mother, and you became my child. This will be us for the
rest of our lives. You will become someone more than my child, but to
me you will always be a part of me. I see you and all the wonderful
things you do and am happy to be with you through it when we're
On the day you were born many people
were waiting anxiously to hear about you and to see you. Friends and
family all over stayed up though the night and got on planes quickly to
come see you. You have changed our lives forever.
the day you were born, the moon and the sun, the stars in the sky and
all the animals, etc went on about their business. However, your daddy
and I stopped our lives to have you. Our day was filled with excitement
and happiness. We were also a little scared and unprepared.
On the day you were born, you were born to us, to this family, and to become the person you will become one day.
