Cash is a good little guy - as long as he's wrapped up like a little burrito he stayed quiet and mellow - and fast asleep. Towards the end of the visit, he started to try to wake up. It was fun to sit and hold a newborn for a little bit - you forget how they weigh nothing at all. Sarah is excited and anxious to get home and start being a mommy. John was so sweet holding him - there's nothing like a new daddy. And Cash has a complete Daddy face - he and John are going to look very much alike. Luckily, that's a good thing!
Anyway, for family members and anyone else who is interested, here's a very grainy picture of me holding Cash in the hospital room. It was the sweetest thing I did all day.
Now - we need to get my other niece Emily going. She is overdue and her poor belly is so big for her teensy little body. I told her about drinking castor oil to get things going (that's what my daughter did her first time around... ewwww...) and it totally worked. For some reason, she was less than enthusiastic about this suggestion. I know I'd rather pull my eyelashes out than drink castor oil, but sometimes you reach a certain point of desperation and I was trying to help. I'm a giver like that.
Congratulations to John and Sarah on their adorable little Cash. He's a keeper - well done!
