I’ll never forget the day Annalise was born. It was a whirlwind of a day full of emotions of being scared and full of joy all at once! I was in love instantly, but it wasn’t until the first night that the nurse brought her into our room for our first middle of night feeding. The lights were off, but there was a glimmer of light coming from the window outside. I suppose a street light or something. I remember the nurse pulling her out of her “bassinet” and her eyes were wide opened gleaming at me. I smiled. I said, “hey there my wide eyed beauty”. It was perfect. So each night, it never failed, every thing the nurse brought her to me, she would become alert and open her eyes and look right at me in the night. It was precious and something I still treasure!
Even now, her eyes captivate me and I melt! Love my little wide eyed beauty!
Until then… Brantley
