February 7 - Happy Birthday, my wonderful daughter. I am so happy you were born this day 6 years ago! Wow! We left for the hospital in morning rushhour and a blizzard. It took about 30 minutes longer than it normally would have to get there, but we made it. I was 9 cm dilated upon arrival and they quickly whisked us down to the ABC, where you emerged after two very intense hours of pushing. Every inch of my body, every cell, was exhausted and weary. But you were here! A week late, you were here. A healthy, beautiful baby girl. Roslyn Grace. Life was never the same after that. What a blessing you are. I love you so much.
February 8 - To celebrate Roslyn's 6th this year, we threw a big party at the downtown ice rink. The day was sunny and warm, a welcome change from the deep freeze we'd been in this winter. With a spectacular Sleeping Beauty cake, a gang of delightful friends and their moms and dads, and fun on the ice, a good time was had by all. The only thing missing was her sweet little sister, Natalie. Always missing, always missed.
