Happy birthday in Heaven to my beautiful Olivia.
12 years ago, I was bringing the most loving, precious, beautiful girl there would ever be into this world. Her huge blue eyes took my breath away. It could have also been the excruciating pain of natural childbirth, but I'm going with the eyes.
I labored with Olivia for 10 hours. I pushed for an hour and 20 minutes. She looked perfect. She nursed in the delivery room. She never slept in that plastic bassinet in the hospital. She was always on me or her dad, mostly me. There was no hint of any problem or the nightmares to come.
