Happy Birthday, Little Pumpkin
Eight years ago tonight, I was halfway through a 17-hour labor (including over two hours of pushing) and at 3:18AM MST, my little girl joined the world. I still can't believe that she's gotten so big. Where has the time gone? I was a 29-year-old PhD student when she was born and now I am in tenure review. We've dragged her all over the continent with us, from Mexico City to Anchorage, Orlando to Seattle. A friend of ours used to say "Well, D's a trooper" when she would be so well-behaved when we took her out. And she really is. It's been wonderful having her with us in our little family. I can't wait to see what she does as she grows up. Happy birthday, my little pumpkin- I'm so proud of you!
