It's funny how emotions can hit you, especially when you think you're happy with everything. And I really am.
But looking at the sweetest little 18 day old baby with his proud parents makes me remember when Cora was 18 days old. It was a happy day because we were going to take her home from the hospital the next day. And that was truly wonderful.
I guess I just feel a little sad that we didn't get to do a beautiful photo shoot with her at such a young age. That she had a feeding tube taped to her sweet little face, was still quite jaundiced and we were hesitant to even take her out since it was so critical to keep her healthy before surgery. We certainly were not up to planning a professional photo shoot.
But the last thing I want to do is feel sorry for myself. Because after all, we did manage to get the sweetest and best girl, even if her earliest photos are a little blurry, captured in the awful NICU lights. I guess you can't have everything!
Okay, I admit it. She was still such a pretty girl, tube, NICU lights and all.
