Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Kaitlyn's Way

We got out of the car and got Kaitlyn's present from Uncle Joe and Aunt Heather to take inside.
We started walking to the door.
I stopped.
Eric: "What are you doing?"
I had to inhale and exhale for just a second before we entered.
"Just a second."
A million thoughts were flying through my head all at once.
I didn't need a second I needed an ambulance!
I thought I was going to cry and throw up all at the same time.
This was NOTHING like labor.... In labor there is too much pain to think.
We walked through the door and took our shoes off.
I checked my shoe to see if my heart was in one of them.
We rounded the corner....

... And she ran...
... she ran into my arms ...
... then into Daddy's ...
... she ran...
