A day of days

Because, my darling daughter, it was just 3 years ago this day that you came to be with us in this world. Like your brother you were born at home, but in your case home was on a different edge of the world, in Brooklyn. You were posterior and sunny side up, which made labor a little different, but right before you entered the world you turned and spun (I think it was the not-quite-born equivalent of a leap), entering the world in grace and beauty. The midwife who was attending us even commented on what a beautiful birth you had.

Sweetheart, I love you in, on, around and through all worlds. This morning you said, "Mama, when you were just a little, little girl you wanted to grow up and be my mommy!", which shows your precocious wisdom :)









Happy birthday and MANY happy returns of the day (G-d willing!) Liel!

Your expressed love for Liel on this post is quite moving for me.
I am also touched and amazed by Liel's comment about you wanting to grow up and be her mommy.
All the pictures you posted are lovely. Looking forward to seeing you all in the flesh in 6 weeks or so.

Happy Birthday Liel...a little late. Your mama's post made me tear up a little. I remember when you were born, we rejoiced here in Texas too!! :)
