|The heart shaped birthday cake the middle pink requested.|
Five years ago today I was waiting in the hospital for my squishy moo middle pink to make an appearance in this world. I already new she would be a pink and had my suspicions that she would be a little on the squishy side - due to her in womb habits. The middle pink was born almost 2 weeks overdue by c-section. I'd been planning a v-bac but the waiting became to much and I booked myself in for the ceasar - despite my midwife telling me she would come when she was ready. I remember the lovely lady who delivered her saying she could see why she hadn't arrived on time - she was just too big. My middle pink weighed in at 9pounds16 or 4.5kgs. She was an adorable chubby newborn who looked nothing like her equally adorable big sister when she was born. I was a bit shocked by that - for some unknown reason I was sure she'd look similar.
I love that first day in hospital with a newborn. High on happy hormones and with a brand new person to explore and get to know. The middle pink had the most humongously loud cry that would stop the moment I touched her. She could be put to sleep with the caress of my hand and breast feed like a champion. I can still clearly see her wrapped up tightly in her lovely pink wraps with a tiny bit of purple bonds poking out underneath. My heart still melts at the thought of picking her up and feeling that warm soft weight in my arms and the intoxicating smell of newborn. She was a beautiful bundle of emotions, warmth and deliciousness. My beautiful middle pink. And today she is five. Mummy loves you squishy moo.
