Hospital Visitors

Pardon this photo-journalistic post. Actually, most of you will probably appreciate a less verbose account for one.
We didn't have too many visitors in the hospital, which is the way I liked it this time around. I was in too much pain and much too unsightly for extraneous persons to be witness to it. However, the visitors we got were the best kind.
Paul-Linda's husband. I've known him since I was about 7 years old. 20 years later, he still looks the same, I swear. One of the nicest guys I've ever met.
Paul and Linda's youngest, and one of Bella's biggest fans Blake. We're pretty sure Bella regards him as somewhat of a boyfriend. Not too shabby.
I took a few of these very awkwardly while I held her in my hospital bed. I was alone most of the time in the hospital but I still wanted to document my time with her, so I craned and stretched and took what pictures I could from my 'just a few inches away from her face' vantage point.
Hence: Extreme Baby Close Up!!! Whoa!

My favorite 3 people.
Enamored older sister.
Love it.
How doting grandfather's are. Lucky, lucky girl.

Paul does look exactly the same! Holy cow! I wish I looked the same as I did 20 years ago...

I love love love the pictures of your 3 favorite people. So sweet.

Congratulations, she is a beauty!

I have a dear and wonderful friend named Fiona (the only other one I know, besides your little one). It's a beautiful name.

She is such a beautiful baby. And I love the pictures of Bella, Fiona, and Timm--priceless.

Susan said...

Yes, being here, sheer joy! A great distraction from my hectic world.

I'm the lucky one!

Diana said...

She is beautiful. I wish I could be a hospital visitor.
I love the picture of Bella with her mouth wide open.

on that second photo...Now I know where Wilson went after tonight's episode of "House"--he was visiting Fiona.

Jill said...

I'm delighted to see more pictures.

Denise said...

Blake does look like Wilson! Too funny. And you're right, Paul does look the same--not fair.

Fiona is beautifully cherubic! I love seeing more photos of her. That one of Bella with the surprised happy face is priceless, as is the one of Grandpa Fred crammed in whatever that tiny play space is!
