Tunesday Tuesday: "Baby, Baby"

"Baby, baby/ I'm taken with the notion/ To love you with the sweetest of devotion"- Amy Grant "Baby, Baby"

I'll be honest; I never thought the day would come when I would be writing a blog post based on an Amy Grant song. But here it is. Contrary to whatever you may believe, this song wasn't written about a studly love machine. Grant was actually inspired to write it after the birth of her daughter. I feel like I've always known it, but I did fall down the Amy Grant/ Wikipedia rabbit hole the other night...



Why you ask am I using a song about a baby for today's Tunesday Tuesday? No, I'm not announcing my pregnancy! But I did spend most of Monday waiting for the arrival of my best friend's first baby girl! She texted me at 2:00 A.M. to tell me her water broke and I totally overestimated the amount of time she would labor. My labor was the longest one ever. I didn't think I was every going to have Sean.



But literally I walked into the hospital room minutes after she delivered. I was so disappointed I missed it, but the most important thing was that mother and baby were both doing well and looking beautiful. I remembered my first night with Sean in hospital- amazed and afraid of the baby swaddled in front of me. I remembered the long, dark nights when I nursed, and it seemed like we were the only two awake in the whole world. I remember thinking I loved him while I was pregnant, but feeling real love the first time I held him. So forgive me for looking a little rough today! I had more important things on my mind!

A big congrats to your friend! Speaking of babies, were we separated at birth? I used to love Amy Grant, including this song. But I didn't know it was about her baby, my love for her was pre-wikipedia days. :)

Look a little rough? I certainly don't think so!! You look cute, as always. Congratulations to your friend. Her baby girl is soo adorable. What's her name? I can remember my baby girl being born like it was yesterday. If I did a tune Tuesday post about it I could use the song Billie Jean, by MJ. That was my nurse's name and she was awesome!! She stayed two hours past the end of her shift to be there when my bundle was born. Awe, sweet memories!

Give that baby a little squeeze for me! ; )

Firstly, wikipedia is a no-good time-suck. Haha. You should take that to mean I've fallen down the rabbit hole once or twice myself.

Also, how exciting! I was with my friend when she had her first child last month and it was quite the experience for this 21-year-old who doesn't plan to have children. (:

Lastly, you look really... I guess chic is the word I want. Totally put-together and classy.

Kimberly Brook said...

Congrats to your friend! It seems like everyone is having babies right now... I love it! You look fabulous as well... I love the black and gold with a red lip. Smokin!

.hello. lj said...

You looked beautiful, Roxie totally stole that show though! She's absolutely perfect! I had to wait until she was a whole 24 hours old to see her, but she was worth the wait! <3

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Loved the pics you took of her. Can't wait to see her newborn pics!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Yeah, there's definitely been a baby explosion in my world! Three in the past week :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

It's definitely an eye-opening experience ;) Childbirth and Wikipedia I guess! And thank you for the awesome adjectives- chic, put-together and classy! Heck yeah!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

It is very exciting! And thank you so much!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

WEll, you know, I had to work hard to get there late... I was feeling pretty rough... She is super adorable!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Now I feel overdressed for a delivery! ;) J/K. Hey baby, take me out to dinner now!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much! You are a style expert so I am going to take your word for it! BTW< I loved your Gwen Stefani article! So fun- I had forgotten about the braces (eek!) and the pink hair (beautiful!)!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Jessica!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

It was pretty exciting. A totally different experience to holding your own. More enjoyable I dare say because when someone else's cries or poops, you can give them back! ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I know, are both mom and baby just beautiful! Lucky girl! And thank you so much! You say dewy, I say sweaty ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

It really was!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Nancy!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Elena! And I know- I couldn't believe how much hair the baby had, so cute!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I know I couldn't believe that hair. Appropriate for Callie though- she'll have tons of fun with it!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Juneli and I agree with the baby! I love all that hair!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

The baby is Roxie! I had an equally amazing nurse, and that makes such a difference. She was wonderful. Visited us even when she wasn't our nurse. I was so blessed. When I went back for my six week check-up I took her flowers. She was so great!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you and thank you!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Me too! Many a day I sang that very song in front of the mirror!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much, Tashia!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much! I just love little babies :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

It truly was amazing. Such a special moment and I am so glad I got to experience it.

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I couldn't agree more! It was really exciting to be there and see her brand=new to the world. Amazing!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Aww, if you were as old as me I would totally say we were separated at birth! ;) You gotta check out her Wikipedia page. There's some juicy stuff there!
