One and a half days old

Yesterday as I walked down the halls of the hospital labor and delivery unit to meet our friends Carey and Brant and their new baby girl, I was retracing the steps I’d taken as Rob and I walked laps back in July as we tried to get labor going the night before Owen’s birth (we were eventually sent home before real labor set in for good). And I was remembering those incredible morning moments when both Owen and Will came into the world.

And then I got to lay eyes on sweet sleeping Curran, who was born, all 8 pounds, 7 ounces of her, just before midnight on Friday.

And that’s when I began to cry. She’s beautiful, isn’t she?

Yes, very, very beautiful. Congrats to Carey and Brant! They hold life so preciously in their hands, so thoughtfully in their heads and meaningfully in their hearts that I know, they will do all right by Curran Riley. Thanks for sharing the good news!
