62 hours, 51 syllables

I loved the post about Birth Story Haikus from Conversion Diary.

I thought I’d try to tackle the challenge of telling you about the day I met each of my kids for the first time, in exactly seventeen syllables.

Hello, Goodbye, Sam

Now making up for lost time.
7 hours– Jem!



*Okay, it wasn’t three full days.  I went in on Tuesday night, and Abby was born Thursday morning.
