Three years ago ...
I can't believe it's been three years since that wonderful, intense, overwhelming, heart numbing day when Tswai pushed back the mosquito netting over your bassinette and I picked you up for the first time.
I'll never forget that moment, I felt like I breathed for the first time and that I was staring at you through a tunnel, no one else existed.
It was odd really watching the videos of that moment, many many months later, listening to all of those babies crying and seeing all of the people who were in that room. I didn't remember any of that.
I remember that it was fasinating and deep to me that you were wearing a sleeper with a pink elephant on it (the same sleeper you already had at home BECAUSE of the pink elephant).
You were sleeping when I picked you up and for a moment you opened your eyes and looked at me and then fell back asleep.
It's been an amazing three years Lucille. You are a dream come true and you amaze me every single day.
