So I finally got to witness the miracle of birth. The moment was extra special since it’s the birth of my daughter. It was quite an enlightening experience. I truly have never thought about Homo sapiens births before, but what a fragile beginning! How could we ever have become the most powerful being on earth like that? What ever happened to Darwin’s Survival of the Fittest? Wouldn’t our natural enemies have killed us all off when our ancestors were in labor? Not only that, human babies have to spend almost a year not being able to move around. Most animals can walk and run soon after they are born. How could the most intelligent life form on earth’s beginning be so sad?
Any way I have digressed; I will write more about Evelyn’s birth in later postings, but for now I need to get back to this photo. These are my daughter’s delicate little feet, which photo was taken on the day of her birth and is also the first in my 52 week photo project.
Evelyn HoangQuyen NguyenTrinh was born on June 5, 2012 at 3:43PM MDT, and at birth she measured 6lbs 12oz and 20 inches long.
