Tomorrow I Play Mid-Wife!

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the baby shower I threw for my best friend's daughter, Jessie. Tomorrow they are inducing labor and we will welcome "our" baby boy into the world. I was absolutely thrilled when the Mommy-to-be said she would like me to be there for the birth. Aside from the fact that it will be wonderful to be on the "other side" of the birthing process, I get to experience the miracle of birth from a new perspective. As if witnessing the birth isn't enough of an honor, the VERY soon-to-be Grandma asked me if I could spend Monday with Mommy and baby because she has to work. This will be their first day at home and Jessie is feeling a bit anxious. If I recall correctly, there will be very little for me to do. I will happily watch him sleep, carry him to Mommy for feedings and soak in every bit of that delicious newborn baby scent.


  1. Oh what a LUCKY LUCKY lady you are! I'd trade places with you in a heartbeat!!! ENJOY! =)

  2. Oh I agree!! You are sooo lucky and what an honor, too! Oh the sweet memories of when our babes were little...that sweet scent, the incredibly soft skin...Makes me tear up just thinking about it...
    Enjoy every second!!!


  3. What an honor. Nothing more exciting than welcoming a new bundle of joy..
