A little birthday present for Sunny
Sunny was born on Thanksgiving Day.
Before hospital guidelines about how long new moms should stay in the hospital after giving birth, I delivered her just after midnight and after begging and bribing the doctor and nurses with a large pizza, I was home by noon with my first child, our sweet Sunny. All my family came to our home that Thanksgiving. I never lifted a finger, and in fact I don't think I ever left my comfy chair in the middle of the living room, cradling and falling in love with my new daughter. My family brought the turkey, the stuffing, the green beans, the pie, all the fixin's and cleaned up when it was over.
And I brought the brand new baby.
This is the first birthday and Thanksgiving that she's not with us. It is a bitter sweet turning of seasons.
So this is for you sweet, wonderful, amazing, birthday girl! Tess, Mimi and Jude picked out this song because it was only that they all knew and could sing without help. And now that I think about it, it is kinda appropriate seeing as how I'm back here at home without you!
I am still in love and in awe of you just like I was that first Thanksgiving day.
Missing you, Sunny, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
