The moment of sweet relief when my baby is now in my arms and not inside my belly and I think, “Wow, you’re a huge baby.” I check all his fingers and toes and stare at his face, trying to figure out if he looks like me or Tyree or any of the other children. Then I decided that he only looks like Declan. He is a new Tyree and looks like himself. That sounds redundant.
Then next thing I realize is that I love my new baby and I am so glad that he is out to greet us all, and I am so glad he is out and alive and well and that he has all his fingers and toes and his eyes are blue.
