Back in the Day

I found this image and it brings back this rush of memories for me.



I delivered via c-section and after they gave me once quick glimpse of her, they whisked her away to the NICU. I impatiently waiting in recovery for them to bring her to me, they didn't. I impatiently waited four hours for a room so we could finally be together.


Finally they took me to the NICU so I could glimpse at the perfection my husband and I created. I saw her laying there and demanded they get me a room NOW (!!) b/c I needed, desperately, to hold her.


About thirty minutes later and a painful transfer from a gurney to a bed my husband wheeled her in and handed her to me.


...


Ever since that moment, I've been hooked.

That's an awesome photo! I love photos that aren't pose and capture the true joy of a moment. We have a picture someone took just after we were engaged and I treasure it.
