My Kara turns twenty-nine today, so I guess she’s not a baby anymore. But she will always be my baby. When Kara was born, she came out so peaceful and quiet that she almost scared me that she wasn’t breathing. She did have to spend her first 24 hours in an incubator because she had a bubble in her lung that had to be watched. It was agony for me to only feel her through the gloves of a machine, but it didn’t last long. I tease her that I could feel her hiccuping so much in my 9th month, it was what caused her bubble to form. To this day, if she laughs too hard she gets hiccups. I like to think that means she has always laughed and enjoyed life. Kara’s life is full and happy even though she has a highly stressful job that she happens to be very good at, and we are so proud of her and all her accomplishments.
Happy birthday, my sweet girl. I always loved these pictures of you!
I love you very much. Have a wonderful day today. Wish you weren’t so far away.
