Thirteen. My mom became pregnant with me thirteen months after my brother was born. I was thirteen days late, born on the thirteenth of April… at thirteen-oh-one in the afternoon.
Think the number thirteen is bad luck? I beg to differ.
So, here I am, moments after I was born. Fist-pumping my way into the world (solidarity, sister!). And yes, I am quite aware that I was a funny-looking baby. Seriously, you don’t have to be nice! I can take it. Truth is, between the comb-over, ruddy red cheeks and bulging eyes, I often look at this photo and groan inwardly.
But then I realize that every baby is absolutely beautiful, and to my mom – who wished for a girl with all her heart – I’m sure I looked like the tiny little miracle that I was.
(And hey! I grew up to be a total babe. So there’s that.)
This Sunday I celebrate thirty-six years. And even though the forecast is calling for rain, I have no doubt my day will be filled with good luck and great laughter. Happy Birthday to me!
