(Not Entirely) Wordless Wednesday 2.5.14

When she was born, I didn't know if I were going to live to take care of her, having been diagnosed with peripartum cardiomyopathy shortly after her birth.







As a newborn, I kept her bassinet pulled up next to my side of the bed, sleeping with one hand inside, because, although it was entirely unfounded, I had a fear that something would happen to her while she slept.

And this week, she turned 15.



Happy birthday, beautiful girl.

  8. Happy Birthday to your 'baby girl'! She is so beautiful. I'm with Mrs AR -- you said a lot in few words. Kudos ...because it's something I have a hard time doing. ;)

    1. Thanks, Kari. I started to write a longer post, then deleted it in favor of this instead.

  10. WOW! That first sentence was a doozy. I can't imagine how that would feel, having a beautiful brand new baby and not knowing if you'd get to see her grow up. So glad you did! =)
