Returning to the exact same hospital and floor where Tesla was born was visiting memory lane for sure. The last time I walked down the long hallway to the elevator from the entrance was with my mom as a contraction came. Dav was parking the car, and a woman passed by and gently said, "breathe..."
When we arrived at Jason and Karen's room, and I saw tiny Thelonious bundled up, I got totally teary. New babies are so precious [yes, it's a cliche but so true!], and knowing the huge transformation Jason and Karen were going through, and that they were going to experience all the amazing things Dav and I have shared with Tesla made me so happy for them and for us. It's such a special "art project" to share with someone you love.
Thelonious is the best boy name ever. Both Dav and I dig it. He was born 4 oz. more than Tesla, but when I saw him, I was in utter disbelief. He was so tiny, and I just can't imagine Tesla being that small! How weird. I'm looking forward to hearing their stories, and sharing parenthood together. Yay! Now Dav and I have more friends who will wanna hang out on a Friday night talking about diapers and sleep.
p.s. When we were there, they were just being transported to the postpartum department. I got to push little Theo in his rolling bed to their new bedroom. How cool!
