my 52Photos capture
Nine years ago today, we met this beautiful baby face for the very first time. Sure, we had seen ultrasound pictures, but how does that prepare you for your first glimpse of your long-awaited for baby?
Isabella Tipton Wright entered this world early and a little unexpectedly as Zach, Gordon and I were doing some shopping at West Town Mall. I still commend my two men for remaining unbelievably calm and level-headed as we scrambled to find the phone number for our Doctor as we headed to the hospital. You see, my water broke and that's what we were advised to do should that happen. Yes, Zach was in the car with us and I tried so hard not to appear distressed or worried or anxious because I didn't want to Zach to be scared that I wasn't doing well. Or about the whole childbirth thing. He was 11 at the time.
I was of "advanced maternal age" as the high risk OB doctors call 39. Yes, I was 39 for my second child, 41 with Victoria and 28 with Zach, which 20 years ago was quite old to be having a first child. Times change, don't they?
