the picture that made me cry

Just hours after coming home from the hospital after the birth of Ainsley I uploaded all my pictures from her birth onto my laptop. As I went through them one by one I remembered bits and pieces of the last nine months but especially the last 3 weeks before her birth.  When I came across this picture I just started to sob. At first and for several weeks I thought my tears were about the emotion and frustration associated with not being allowed to have a vaginal birth. Then the other day, I went back to the photo and it occurred to me that it wasn't that at all. This picture was the first image I saw of my precious baby girl. Eric had captured my first site of her perfectly!
