It was past midnight before I got to hold my baby for the first time!
Three days later we came home together:
On November 5, 2009 I added the title mommy to my name. It has been an amazing and wonderful journey. From her first bath, to eating carrots, to learning how to hold her head up and sit alone. Then she got some teeth and learned how to crawl. Now she is a walking, jabbering, bundle of energy. There were sleepless teething nights, but there were also giggles and the pleasure of her smile. I just think she is so cute!
Everyone seems to notice her eyes first. I never get tired of hearing them comment, “Look at those eyes!” because I get to reply, “They are like her daddy’s eyes.” She has an adventuresome spirit like Ben, too. I think she will be petite like her Grandma Hamilton, but she definitely has Grandpa Godby’s strong lungs & voice! Every day I get to stay home and take care of Elaine. We have so much fun together! I cannot believe she is a year old – has it really been that long since she came home with us? I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her little life, and how God will use her in His plan!
Happy 1st Birthday to my Elaine Cristin Hamilton!
