It’s a girl!

It’s a girl! Finally, after hours on edge and a brush with death for both the baby and mom, she’s here. Mother and baby cried. Tears of joy and exasperation fell down their faces. The doctors did their thing. She weighs six pounds, twelve ounces and is nineteen inches long. Not bad for a premie. They swaddled her up and placed her in the arms of her more than ready mom. Their eyes meet and the tears stop. Mom holds baby close and tight, almost too tight. Mom kisses baby’s forehead and both
cheeks. Nose and chin. “I’ll never let her go.”
