13-years-ago tonight, my unexpected birthday-dinner detour to check in with the OB forced me into a hospital bed and frantically peaceful pre-term labor. 

Eight exhilaratingly exhausting hours later, the wailing out of healthy newborn cries singing a cadence of newness and earth-shock were the sweetest birthday tune I'd ever heard. 

That song accompanied me into my first moments of motherhood.

Happy Birthday, my incomparably sensitive, freshly teenaged Holden. 

Happy Birthday to US!
