My Baby Girl!!!!

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Eleven years ago today I became a mom when I gave birth to my daughter Kaili at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston!   She was born at 1:06am and by the time she was delivered I was exhausted (no one really prepares you for the intensity of birth).  By the time we got down to my room (my husband was already sleeping) it was 4 in the morning.  The nurse wanted me to get sleep and she said they were taking Kaili to get cleaned up and would bring her to me after I rested.  About 30 minutes later I hear this crying coming down the hall, I jump up "It's Kaili, it's Kaili", in those few short hours, I knew her cry.  The nurse came in and said, sorry mom, we tried everything and passed her around, we could not get her settled, she is not a happy camper.  I said "no wonder" what we both just went through"....   Any way, within a minute I had this baby soothed, I held her and said, mommy's here, it's okay.  From that moment, I learned the incredible natural gift of motherhood and the bond between mother and child.  

Happy Birthday Kaili, I am so proud to be your mom!  You are a HIPP girl and  you inspire me to be a HIPP Mom!

Have a HIPP day and give birth to something new today!
