Big Baby

As Ingrid's birthday approaches I've been thinking a lot about where we were a year ago. Our time in Pittsburgh was ending, while at the same time this new life was about to begin. A baby girl's life, I could not have imagined her in a million years. Each day waiting for Ingrid's "due date" was so long and I was impatient for her birth. Finally, when she decided it was time, she came like a sudden summer storm, like a force of nature and then she landed softly in my arms. Everything with Ingrid has been like this, assertive, spunky, determined...while at the same time warm, tender and sweet.
