happy birthday baby!*



14 years ago...

Kissing Sara, as my only child, for the last time...
Listening to French language tapes in the car while driving to the hospital to make me laugh. (If you heard me speak in French you´d understand...)
Waiting...
You frowning at me the first time we met... (and for the next week)
A joy, that I´m reminded of, every time you say "mommy"...

*I know, I know... you aren´t my baby any more...
