Our Dearest "Dee-Dee", "Long Haired Hippie Child","Spider Scientist", Eleven years ago, today, we received you in the bathroom while the midwife was gathering her tools of the trade. Wrapped three times with your own umbilical cord, yet not fully emerged, you wailed lustily for life. You are the apple of our eyes and a joy to behold. We are so proud of your accomplishments! Happy Natal Day! Love, Mama and Papa
