Eight Years Ago...
... we were getting up way too early in the morning for a scheduled c-section. Our daughter was born almost before the rest of the family arrived in the waiting room. We knew she was going to be a she, but hadn't told anyone else. On my side of the family there hadn't been a girl-child for a few generations, so this was big news.
She's such a big girl now, tall and lanky and just right in every way. She's slightly spoiled, but in a good way. And she's very sensitive to others, something you can't really teach but you can shape and model.
Happy birthday, Cameron. Smile purty.
