It was about now in 1997 when my wife’s pregnancy test showed the two lines (pregnant). I was excited. My wife was not quite so excited at first, but as time went on, and she could feel baby’s movements, her excitement level went *WAY* up.
Our daughter was born in early January, 1998. We left for the hospital around 5am and she was born at 12:30pm. She weighed 6-1/2 pounds and was just over 20 inches long. I still remember the feeling of amazement and awe as I looked at her laying in the little plastic bin on the weight scale. These memories are so strong that it seems that this happened just a few days ago.
Rolling over, crawling, solid food, first words, first steps, planting sunflower seeds, helping me in the garden, reading, first day of kindergarten, school dances, 8th grade graduation, driving license, prom and yesterday, high school graduation.
It’s going so quickly.
