The one with the picture

(^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.

That drawing is so incredibly sweet! I'm that person who wants out of the hospital as soon as humanly possible after having a baby. With our first we had to stay the second day because there wasn't anyone to do the hearing test, and with Kinsley we left 30 hours after she was born! I missed Kyle way too much, and everyone made sure to tell me I was in fact insane haha.

Oh my word I'd totally be emotional if some enabled me a HAND DRAWN picture of my baby!!! So sweet! Whenever I give labor, I plan to milk my time at the hospital!!! ;)

That is the sweetest gift ever. I also love the Friends reference. I'm watching the series from beginning to end (for the 100th) time on Netflix. It's the best!

Wow that is such a sweet gift! I also love it when someone uses their talents to brighten the day of someone else-those lovely people are the rays of sunshine in life!

What a precious gift! I love a "busy" refrigerator with lots of stuff on it. Now that we're older though we always argue over who mom loves more based off of how much of our stuff or pictures are on the fridge ;)

Oh sweet child. I can imagine that it's the quiet before the madness that is relatives and family and visitors and well wishers
