Getting to be part of a brand new person’s entrance into the world is always, always memorable. But when it’s the birth of one of my dearest friends’ first baby, it’s even more poignant and unforgettable for me. This amazing little man was so long-awaited, so deeply longed for, and it was incredible to be there for his arrival. My friend Casey is a warrior mama. That’s all I’m going to say so I don’t cry. xoxo
It was a long, long night.

Can we just pause right here for a minute and let this sink in? The image below makes me bawl.
10,000 words. Right there.
The first cry – the first sign that everything was indeed going to be okay – before they even saw him for the first time. Pure joy. I wept.
Perfect angel baby.
Another one of those moments that makes my heart stop, right there below. Breathe it in.
