babies

Whenever I see "A Baby Story" on tv I kinda roll my eyes a little bit. I don't know why, but that show weirds me out. I know a lot of women who like to watch it when their pregnant but it just freaked me out. And I can't imagine sharing your delivery day and first days as parents with a camera crew.

I kind of had the same reaction when I first saw all these birth stories being posted on Design Mom... but despite myself I started reading... and I haven't stopped. There's something about them being in written form that makes it seem less intrusive. And seriously, being born is a really big deal, and it always makes a good story.

My friend Andrea just had a baby and her story's kinda scary, but everything turned out great and she got a seriously adorable baby out of it. After I had Jonas I was so bugged by all the nurses checking up on me. They'd come in to just check on me, not Jonas, every few hours, waking me up and everything. It made me pretty crazy at the time - but Andrea's story helps me to understand why... and now i feel a little bad about being so annoyed at the nurses. I'll try to be a little understanding next time around. But I'm still high-tailing it out of the hospital as soon as I can.
