Sweet Baby Boy (and I love my job!)

My friend and co-worker, Colleen had her 2nd child, a beautiful baby boy, this morning. She was several days overdue and was so ready to meet her new little guy. Colleen had a long, hard first labor with her oldest, Nathan and was prepared for the same kind of labor this time around. No matter how many times we told her over the last nine months that first labors are the very, very, hardest and second labors are faster and easier, she just wasn't buying it......and she's a labor and delivery nurse!! She tells second time moms this same thing all the time!! Oh Colleen, you silly goose! What an absolute joy it was to tell her shortly after I arrived this morning that she was almost ready to have her baby!! She couldn't believe it! Tears of happiness all over the place. You're a rock star, Colleen! I'm so proud of you and feel so honored and blessed to have attended your birth. (Oh, and I got to catch the little guy which was icing on the cake for me.) It was a perfect morning! I also want to give a shout out to daddy, Mike who is also a complete rock star. He stayed by Colleen's side the entire time. What a great husband and daddy you are! Congrats to the whole family. Can't wait to see you all tomorrow.....oh, and BTW, what a beautiful quilt you have your baby wrapped up in!
