(^just 5 months ago. Delicious then. Delicious now.)
I love the few days right after labor and delivery. People taking care of everything for me and the quiet moments in the hospital with just me and baby are some of my favorite memories. I always felt so vulnerable those few days, and loved how my one job was to be with my baby, and how everything else was either unimportant or handled by someone other than me.
Have you seen the episode of Friends where Ross stays in the hotel room and refuses to leave until the last second before checkout? (And how he has everything from the room in his bag ready to take home?!) That's exactly how I am in a hospital room after having a baby.
I loved those days! (and think people who leave the hospital early are CRAY!!) I'm excited to relive them again (well kind of...without the whole labor part...OW!) with my sisters and sister in law when they have their babies.
Anyway...all these emotions started resurfacing after receiving this beautiful drawing of my baby Crew.
Isn't it so beautiful and perfect?! A sweet and talented young lady (Amy, you're the best!) from church gave it to me after seeing the first picture on Facebook. I keep it on my fridge so I can see it all the time (I keep all the good stuff on my fridge...sisters' pictures, ultrasounds, kids' best artwork). I love it so much, and love when people use their talents to brighten someone else's day.
