In Celebration of Two Birthdays

On the 25th of May, 2007 I gave birth to my beautiful daughter, Gabriella. Although she was born three weeks early she was in perfect health. The labour and birth were absolutely amazing – it took all of two hours!! She popped out at 6:18am and by 7:00 pm I was back at home. Please celebrate this Birth Day with me!!

Brand New

Brand new with tags on
Your newness leaves me breathless
My beautiful one

And happy 1st birthday to One Deep Breath. Thank you for drawing out a hidden talent I never knew I possessed – the ability to Haiku! Up until ODB I never even knew what a Haiku was, so thank you!

Congratulations for your blessing... your baby shares the same b-day of my daughter. Enjoy every moment because they grow up soooooo fast and I bet you're going to find a lot of things to laugh about just by watching your babd discover life all around you.

Have a wonderful week!!! I hope you can get some sleep in there too.

How absolutely wonderful: the haiku and the news. Congratulations. The haiku brought a tear to my eye - remembering my baby who is now 15.
