Thirty-four years ago I was in the hospital preparing to welcome into the world a miracle....my daughter. When the doctor laid her in my arms and she wrapped her tiny hand around my pointer finger I knew that I was a goner. At that moment in time there was not another mother alive who was so captivated by something as beautiful as she was. She is still captivating me today. Every year I try to do a time line birthday post telling you about her. She is amazing, strong, faithful, loving, and every other good adjective I can think of. So...let me introduce you to my daughter (and for those of you out there with one....you may have many of the same feelings). Kat was a rocker....when she was little we would rock a lot. She would hold onto my shirt with her little fist and gaze up into my face. It does something to me even today to hold a baby and rock. She slept through the night from the time we got home from the hospital. The only time she didn't was when she was about six months old and had colic. I was a blessed woman.
NYC was awesome with Deborah, Jill, and Kat. I wish we could go back and relive that moment in 1998 again. It was heaven on earth.
There is nothing like seeing Italy with your daughter. She was the most fun and add my friend Mary in with her and everyday was a party.
