Into My Hands

We just celebrated the 3rd anniversary of this event. Ean’s birth. It was a fabulous party, in a hotel at Yosemite National Park. Splendid.

daughter 3: I took a bath with mama and then I was listening to stories and then I heard you were born and I held you first!

daughter 2: I got to cut your cord and then I held you. close.

daughter 1: I heard you, and then they passed you into my arms.

Mama: And i knew you were coming and I pushed you out into my hands.

baby thinks: it was dark and squeeze-y and then it was bright and cold but I was warm in the hands of my family.
