We weren’t alone in hoping for our family, and now our daughter has quite a fan club. Having people love her (and us) is such a blessing.
The day started with my high school friend Bekah, who is a labor and delivery nurse at nearby Clark Memorial Hospital, helping us navigate through the lack of paperwork and direction to the newborn screen Cate needed after 48 hours from birth. Along for the ride were Bekah’s daughter, Ila, who was celebrating her first birthday today, and Bekah’s mom, who chauffeured Bekah and me to many swim team practices in high school.
So, anyway, here is Greg encouraging Ila to make entertaining sounds with her lips while we finish up our lunch at McAllister’s Deli.
Here’s Laura holding Cate with her daughter, Gillian, wanting to be part of the moment.
