This is the first time I held her, something I have waited 27 years for. She was so incredibly beautiful, I fell in love instantly. I think Zach was worried I might run out the door with her, he told me each baby is equipped with an ankle alarm "baby Low-Jack" that will go off if she passes through the door, my plan was foiled.
Here is her first stroller ride. Let's just say it didn't start out well, Erica and I got 20 feet from the front door when we were accosted by a bee. We both freaked out because Zach is allergic, at one point Erica screamed "SHE COULD BE ALLERGIC LIKE ZACH!" Then there was a lot of swatting at air and dancing around. Things settled down after the bee left.
She looked very contemporary in her striped H&M onesie and green headband.
Dear Baby Girl,
You are very lucky to have the parents you do. Do you know that your Mom told me in the hospital she didn't want to go to sleep because she didn't want to miss anything you did and your Daddy held you for hours just staring at your beautiful face? They love you beyond anything you can imagine until one day you have your own child.
When my mom tucked me in at night she said "I love you more than the sun and the moon and the stars." Guess what Ivy, I love you more than the sun and the moon and the stars. I plan on us being best friends, I hope you will share your secrets and dreams with me.
