These are some of my favorite photos and favorite moments from the hospital! Can you die at her thick brown hair?! We were so surprised by it! I actually had hair just like hers when I was born and my mom said shortly after it all fell out and grew in blonde. Her hair is already starting to fall out and it is so sad seeing it get thinner and thinner but I am excited she (maybe) will have blonde hair and we can be little twinners. Every mom secretly wants to be twins with her daughter right?
The hospital time with a new baby is my favorite 24 hours EVER. I still can remember every detail about Atticus’ hospital experience and all the feelings of holding him the first time, getting to do skin on skin, and cuddles with him and David.. it literally gives me butterflies thinking about it. This time was just as good and I am really glad we have these photos to remember it all. Its pure bliss!!!
In New York you dont automatically get your own room to recover in.. you have to share the room. You can be put on a list and pay (a lot) to go to a private room but there are only so many available when you deliver. The advice I kept getting from friends when we moved here was to absolutely get a private room. We asked to be put on the list and didnt get one until the next day but boy was it worth every penny. The hospital experience is too special to have to share it with some stranger’s phone conversations, noises, smells, and visitors. I love peace and quiet when I am snuggling my newborn the first time and I loved every second of cuddles with this cute girl!!! She is such a snuggle bug and she was so content the whole hospital stay. I also didn’t mind watching her snuggle her dad 🙂 With both babies it was sooo hard for me to sleep after so I went over 36 hours without sleep – and would only sleep here and there after.
The morning we took these my mom brought Atticus over to the hospital in the morning and Atticus was totally cheesing it up for us all! He would hug Rosie and then look up at us with a huge grin and loved all the attention 🙂 I was so glad that Stephanie came and captured all his cheese on camera and I can look at these forever. After we took these photos we filled out her papers and headed home. When we walked out of the hospital with her it was the most gorgeous day – raining and we walked out of the hospital to a view of Central Park and amazing fall leaves.
