First Came Chloe

Today we celebrated our eight year old.

She was the first we held, though three little souls passed through my body before her.

She has a light about her that feels so good.

She often wishes for a sister, I tell her that one day she and I will go have a spa get away, girls night out, just the two of us.

She wanted a computer, a puppy and a bird (can't remember what kind) for her birthday.

She got a camera, she's a wonderful photographer.

She came first, this little girl of ours, and here we are at eight.
