Down to earth with a bump (23) Welcome Esme Grace

PINK OR BLUE FLAVOUR (II)

Our baby girl was born at 11:48pm on August 29, 2008.
She was named almost immediately.
Simon chose Esme. I chose Grace.
She was a part of the two of us.

This little being whom I had spent nine months trying to bond with, was placed on my jelly belly tummy with her eyes wide, staring at me. I was totally amazed, and could not stop staring right back. And it was at that magical moment, that the first love to bond her and I together began. Here was my baby. My Esme Grace. So teeny. So helpless. So dependent on me. So in need of me. Just as perhaps, I was in need of her, after all.
