I did it!!

You might not think this is a big deal.. but for me and the last 10 months of my life, it really is ! I purposely went to visit our friends and their new baby girl! She is so tiny, 5.5 pounds, and with these delicate little adorable features! AND a TON of hair, with frosted tips! She's already stylin'! ;) Shaun and Gwen held her.. and Gwen had the biggest grin on her face.. she called her precious! I thought it would be hard seeing Gwen hold a newborn, but it wasn't... it was really a beautiful moment! Congrats Rob and Amy!! Your sweet girl is just lovely! :)

Shannon...I am so happy that you were able to do it! I know that I sometimes see your face when you watch Gwen interacting with Merry and she is older, so I know how big of a step this must have been for you with a brand new baby. You and Shaun are the bravest people I know. Love you guys.

Shannon, what a big step! I could never understand the strength it took for you to do that, but we are always amazed at your strength and determination.

I remember doing that with my niece who was born days after Caleb should have been born. I was so relieved to find myself happy to see her and know she made it here alive.
The sadness for me came later but it didn't overshadow the joy.
So glad it went so well for you too!!
