FC: Chapter One: | The Legend of Molly Bowe | The First Year
1: On the day you | were born... | ...a sleepy and excited Mom and Dad arrived at the hospital at 5:00am on Thursday, August 12th, 2010. It was a dark and beautiful night and the whole city was asleep except us. After we got checked in, they asked us a thousand questions and told us you were coming soon! We watched the morning news while Mom (and Dad) ate purple popsicles. | Finally the doctor called and said he was on his way! He told the nurses to get Mom ready. But we had to wait even longer! Mom got a shot so it didn't hurt so much and then slept for a few hours while waiting for the doctor. When the doctor finally arrived, he woke Mom up and said, "It's time to have a baby!" | Less than an hour later you arrived at 1:34pm. We were so surprised and excited to learn that you were a girl! The nurses took you to get measured, weighed and cleaned up. Eight pounds was bigger than we expected you to be! When they were done, they brought you over to lay with us for a little while. You ate your first meal and slept a lot. | The rest of the day we all spent together resting and calling everyone to tell them about you. They couldn't wait to meet you and screamed at us to send them pictures of our perfect, little Molly Bowe.
