It was a lovely, quiet evening. We called our families, but asked them to come in the morning. We kept you all to ourselves. We had a big, soft bed that we all curled up in. I was too excited to sleep. You were tired from the birth and I knew I should get some rest while I could. But you were too beautiful. I had to keep looking at you.
Happy Birthday, my beautiful Aoife. I hope that you have a long, long life, and I am so hopeful that I will be able to share it with you. I can hardly imagine the things you will be capable of experiencing. I love you so very, very much.
