< 3.5 days >

My dear friend had her baby a couple of weeks ago (almost 2 whole weeks before her scheduled c-section!), and I got to visit them at the hospital and then the day after they got home, when he was only 3.5 days old. It made me realize how fast these darn babies grow (since mine already seemed so huge at 5 weeks), and how important it is to cherish them at every age. Even when you're sleep deprived and exhausted and so tempted to miserably anticipate the next stage when they're just a teeny bit less dependent. What a beautiful a new baby is to a family--and to anyone else who gets to be around them. And this little guy is no different. I felt like a better person for being around him. Congratulations, guys!
