One year ago...

I was being wheeled in to the OR. After 26 hours of labor, I had to come to peace with the decision to have a csection. Magdalena was stuck and was starting to feel weary of the whole laboring process. Although I was scared, I was ready to meet my tiny little girl. Erich was nervous as heck and I'll always remember the doctor coming in and saying, "there is one really nervous dad out there." I'll always remember the sound of their voices as they worked to free her from the position she had wedged herself into my pelvis. And I'll never forget the sound of that scream, so angry to be pulled out of her warm home. What a wonderful memory.

Happy First Birthday Magdalena! You've made our lives so much richer and I'm sure you'll touch many more lives as the years pass. I love you Little Diva.
