some friends of ours just got a call from the stork to come and meet the baby they have been waiting years for.
it brought back so many memories about the day we got our call, and the day we walked into the NICU to meet our daughter.
i was scared off my rocker. if i close my eyes i can see her tiny face. i tell people her transparent skin resembled a lizard. she also has a touch of Squiggy (laverne & shirley). even with all that going on, she was the most beautiful creature i'd ever seen. she looked so tiny in mikes hands. mike looked so grown up holding a baby.
we spent the night with her in the NICU, and watched her EVERY move. i didnt wanna let her go. i memorized everything about her in minutes. examined every part of her tiny body. i whispered in her ear promising to love her till the end of time.
we left the hospital a few days later with her. mike said "can you believe those people let us have a baby?" i couldn't. i can't.
here are some pictures secretly shot in the NICU the night god introduced us to our forever princess
