I want to remember


During our days in the hospital after Maggie was born, I want to remember the nurses who went out of their way to make us sure we were comfortable. There were so many good things that happened in those days and I know it will soon seem like a blur.


Our nurse in labor and delivery was outstanding and only took two ten minute breaks in the seven hours we were together.

The first thing I ate after Maggie was born was ice cream. The nurse brought me one cup of vanilla and one of chocolate.

My OB came by to visit me the morning Maggie was born (she was not the MD who delivered Maggie).

We had a few visitors during our hospital stay. One night friends brought us dinner from our favorite Chinese food restaurant and another brought delicious sandwiches for lunch.



The hospital food wasn't terrible. I have to admit I miss ordering breakfast and having it show up at my room 30 minutes later.


I loved Maggie's hair from the first moment I laid eyes on her, but loved it even more after she had been bathed. I didn't grow any hair until age two, so seeing my baby with hair was a sweet surprise!


I'll be back with more photos; the mister did a great job taking pictures throughout our hospital stay.

I can't wait to share the birth story, but finding time to write it down has been a challenge: I'd rather snuggle sweet Maggie!

  5. Sweet photos! I know the feeling...I wanted to remember everything about my firstborn's birth as well...it was so special! So was my second son's, but it was so fast and furious, it is just harder to remember the details. You are right to write it down while it is fresh!!
