There are a lot of words you think of when you imagine the emotion of a baby's arrival. With these sweet friends of mine, the things that repeatedly came to mind as I witnessed this perfect day were excitement, and pride.
There was so much of this in the hospital with them that day. There were overjoyed to meet their son, and I loved watching them marvel over his every inch....in a "we made this!!" way.
I loved watching daddy hold his son for the first time, with the biggest smile you can imagine. I loved watching them introduce their baby boy to their parents (just wait...most precious grandparent photos ever). And most of all, I loved watching my friend just gaze down at him in the quiet moments, getting to know this tiny little human that was knit together inside of her.
