16 years ago today

16 years ago today I was fairly tired, you see after a 42 hour home-birth labour (actually it was only the last 8 hours that I really minded!) - I had my beautiful (I embrace my bias) baby girl - Kahurangi. 

Today is her 15th birthday.  We went shopping at our favourite second hand clothes shop, went to the movies, I am Legend (I enjoyed it but I'm such a coward I had to hide in Kahurangi's shoulder at anything remotely scary), and chilled out, she is currently watching her gift from me - the complete series of Cowboy Bebop. 

My last hours of no responsibility...

NB - Kahurangi means taonga (loosely translated as treasure), it is also blue (the colour of the sky).

great photo, and Happy Birthday to Kahurangi, pretty name and meaning...Nice birthday gift...Sounds like she has had a wonderful time too. I probably would not mind kids one day, but it's the labour part that scares the crap out of me.....I think I will stick to being a surrogate mother to animals at the moment!

I can barely remember my pregnancy or childbirth when I had my son. But running around after him and all the responsibilities afterwards were a lot more time-consuming. She's a beautiful girl. Sounds like a nice birthday for her.

What a gorgeous photo! The mattress in the background is interesting. And you look so happy and glowing. And so young! And Kahurangi is such a beautiful and unique name. Happy 15th! Are there any pix of her in your albums?

Happy Birthday to Kahurangi! I hope all her sweetest dreams will come true. I love that her name is as meaningful as it is pretty. Sounds like you 2 had a lovely day. You look radiant in that photo btw. I can't believe you were in labor for 42 hrs. I haven't watched I Am Legend yet because they show a pretty grim version of NYC in it. I saw them filming parts of it by where I work and also where I live.
