After 20 hours of labor, I needed a C-section at 4am. I was so spent, I almost fell asleep right after. But once they put my daughter, Clara, in my arms, I couldn’t stop stop looking at her. I’d somehow thought I’d be having a black-haired, brown-eyed boy—I couldn’t get over my blonde, blue-eyed girl! PS: That necklace I’m wearing? I spent the next 3 weeks *wanting* to take it off, but feeling too tired to reach behind my neck and unclasp it, no exaggeration.
