A friend recently posted on Facebook her first words to her baby. At first I couldn’t remember mine. Then I paused for a bit and tried to do a rewind.
My earliest memory was that first family selfie Joel took but I couldn’t really place in on a timeline. But I did remember that moment I regained consciousness (although to be honest, I was in and out of it for a while). I had Joel by my side and heard a baby cry somewhere to my far left. I wasn’t thinking but I immediately said “Don’t cry Luna, mama’s here” repeatedly. We were probably in the recovery room by then. Glad I was the only patient there. That would have been weird if the crying baby turned out not to be mine. LOL.
I haven’t seen the videos Joel took. I promise I’ll watch them this weekend and see how good (or bad!) my memory is.
