Quick Update

Monday, March 26, 2007
As soon as they got back to the hotel, Dave called me on skype (internet phone) with the webcams. So, I got to see my beautiful daughter. It was amazing. I even woke Harry up at midnight to meet his sister. Dave said Kate is quite big and definitely the biggest in our group. She was crying the most too. She is absolutely, stunningly beautiful. Am I allowed to say that about my own child?

She did not want her bottle but she gobbled up some day old cake they got on the airplane. She was eating it as I watched on the webcam. I guess her referral information was correct--it said she liked cake!

Dave had to rush off to a meeting so I don't have a picture yet. But I will within a few hours. I got so many wonderful e-mails and messages and it has made my heart soar. I will print them all out for Kate to have someday. Thank you.

  6. I needed a morning cry..so glad you got to see your daughter. Isn't it amazing how much you can love a person you just met..even if they weren't too happy meeting you ; ) Don't worry..give her time and she will be laughing and playing. It was a pretty big day for her. Hope they took big enough clothes....love a chubby healthy baby!
