Ever since we met that July day in the hospital, I tend to get emotional thinking about my daughter's future. I frequently imagine her as a little girl, then as a preteen, as an older teenager, and finally a young woman. My eyes mist the most when I imagine her as a mother. This is all ridiculous, I realize, because she may never be a mom - either by choice or by circumstance. But she will grow up, and that will happen faster than I am willing to admit.
*I was motivated to write this post by The Body Scoop for Girls: A Straight Talk Guide to a Healthy, Beautiful You, by Jennifer Ashton, MD, OB/Gyn. I received a complimentary copy of the book as part of the Silicon Valley Moms Group bookclub.

I forgot to post this last weekend, but I wrote a (slightly emotional) post for Chicago Moms Blog that happened to go live on Mother's Day. It was just a little reflection on where I "was" about a year ago - and making challenging choices about childbirth. It was good for me to write it, if nothing else. Enjoy if you so choose!
