Eleven years ago today (it was a Friday, thanks for asking) my doctor sent me to the hospital to have labor induced.
God gave us a little baby girl, wide eyed, and bald-headed that evening, and my life has never been the same.
She had the faintest red glow about her head, so we knew she'd be a red-head.
She is beautiful.
She is precious.
She'll always be my baby,
the one who first called me Mommy.
Happy eleventh birthday, sweet girl!
I love you Hailey!
