Pictures of Tucker!

I realized I am freaking out like no one has ever had a baby before, but Erin is honestly my very first close friend to ever have a baby. That seems so funny to say, but it's true. I couldn't be happier if it were my own.

And I realized, as I typed that last sentence, that it is true.


I realized I ought to clarify this post, lest I hurt the feelings of everyone else in my life who's ever had a baby. Many of my friends already had their kids when we met. Some of them had babies in the meantime, but usually after we'd PCSed away from each other and weren't in constant contact. None of my or my husband's siblings have ever had children, and I don't live near my aunts and cousins.

But Erin called me repeatedly from the hospital, and called me before she even called her dad to tell him the news. I am so honored that she shared her special day with me.

Also, I want to say how strong she's been. Her husband deploys in the next few weeks or so, but I haven't yet heard her complain at all. Heck, he leaves tomorrow for a week of training, and she is taking it in stride.

She has fully grokked how special it is that she now has a little baby to call her own. Nothing else matters, and nothing else is worth complaining about.

I hope someday I can be as mature as she is.

1 Sarah, you worry too much about offending people! Speaking as someone who considers herself your friend and has a roiling horde of children myself, none of those thoughts ever crossed my mind!

2 You will be an awesome mother! As will Erin! You guys are full of love for your husbands and for each other! You are tolerant, even when people are being retarded. I am so sorry for everything, Sarah. I am really happy for Erin, and consequently YOU and baby Tucker. All of those beautiful things that you made? WOW! I wish I had a tad of that talent! Maybe someday. Thank you so much for posting about Erin and sharing. It's really wonderful news!
