And Now You Are Two

My gal Sal, how did you grow so quickly?

Wasn't it two hours ago that I was being pumped full of pitocin and an epidural that didn't work? Wasn't it two minutes ago that you came barreling into this world, pink and round? (click here, if you have the time, and read Sally's story)

No, that was two years ago.

Now you are a wonder, a hugger, a little sister, a big sister, a lover, a fighter, a kisser, a biter, a pretend cake-maker, a sibling toy-taker, a Mama's girl, a Daddy's girl, a precious pearl.

We've always said that you are our baby made from pure joy. You came to us after a long, hard time in our family, and we couldn't be more thankful for you.

Happy Birthday, Sally. We love you.
