192: Just from heaven

And here's the little guy....

I visited my friend in the hospital today and got to soak up some day old baby goodness. We've only had Sophie for 19 months, but I had already forgotten the newness of a bundle fresh from heaven. Inhale deeply. Hold it for a moment. Now, exhale. Ahhhh. It's like the fountain of youth. His little face all scrunched up and red...the whole growing a baby inside you then bringing it into the world really is amazing. But, I didn't feel the need to bring him home with me. Nope. I just held him for a moment, stared at him for a little while, breathed him in, then gave him back. No longing. No clock ticking. Nothing. Then, as soon as I got home I wrestled my 3 monkeys into a big pile of hugs and laughing. I'm grateful for feeling absolutely content. And thanks N. family for letting me share your joy!

There is something about it! My neighbor Cindy had her baby on Saturday and I'm dying to hold him!
