This morning I awoke to the news that my best friend had given birth to her first baby - a sweet little daughter as well. I don't know if it was pregnancy hormones still hangin' around, but I teared up remembering the exact emotions she was going through as she lie in that sterile hospital bed. Staring at her little one swaddled up in her portable bassinet, wondering when the excitement is ever going to die down to get some much-needed sleep, and occasionally sticking her hand on that baby's chest to make sure it's rising up and down. It's a funny thing, that little secluded hospital room. You'll never forget it even though you're only there for a measly 48 hours, compared to the lifetime of love you're about to experience.
The reunion of emotions inspired me to create a little tribute to the 48 hours I was in that hospital room. The time that I was brand new to it all.
