Other Mamas Having Babies

Two nights ago a friend of mine gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, and Kevin and I got to be at the hospital when Baby Sam entered the world! There was so much excitement, so many smiles and happy tears. There truly is nothing like the day a baby is born. It is a wondrous miracle that completely amazes me every time it happens. And I praise our Creator for it!

I love to watch first-time Mamas and remember all the emotions that I felt when my firstborn entered our lives. It was the wildest and most earnest mixture of joy and fear and love and confusion. We couldn't believe the doctors and nurses were actually going to let us take a whole person home with us!

But we did. And it changed our lives forever. It's a wonderful adventure! And I love seeing new Mamas and Daddies as they're just setting out on theirs.

Mama Question: What advice do you have for brand new Mamas?

I just got off the phone with 1 of my friends who's currently in labor! She took 3 breaks in our conversation to have contractions. The anticipation is so terribly exciting!

Tip #1 that I should have followed with first child: sleep when the baby sleeps & don't wake the baby to feed (unless dr. instructs for medical reasons).
