The category over at Category Stories for the beginning of this month is “unexpected”. Though babies are something of a theme for this challenge, my miss Eliza was the first thing I thing I thought of. I went with that instead of working uber hard to be original.

I’m glad for this challenge because I’ve wanted to make a page like this for sometime but couldn’t seem to find the right words. It important for me that Eliza knows that, though she was a surprise, we’ve wanted her from the moment we found out she was coming. I figure it’s better to be open and honest, because I don’t want her to do the math someday and worry that she was a “mistake”.
