Happy Birthday, Daughter!
July 29, O blessed day, the day Fiorella's daughter was born. Baby was an early bird, taken two weeks premature because she was already at nine pounds, nine ounces, and Dr. Stahl was concerned she might rupture Fio's slash line from when Baby's brother had been born nineteen months earlier. But this time around, Fio got an epidural so eveything went smoother. She's told you how she sang "May she be like Ruth and like Esther...." when the doctor announced Baby was a girl. In fact, Fio's told you the whole story before, and be warned--she'll probably tell it to you again next year. July 29 is a sacred day for Fio, as are the birthdates of all her children.
