Our friends Rob and Hillary got married and had a baby girl named Hattie Ilene.
I can officially say that our apartment is big enough for 4 adults and a 10-month-old.
We so enjoyed having them here in the city with us.
I loved having a baby crawling around on our (swept) floor and taking a bath in our kitchen sink.
We filled our days talking and laughing and eating J's good cooking.
Hattie also managed to get a tour of a local clinic here in NYC.
A 104.7 temperature will do that.
One day, I came home to fresh flowers + a ballooned + bannered apartment compliments of Justin and Hillary.
However, one of my favorite memories was listening to Hillary sing to Hattie before she went to sleep.
I can still hear her voice singing a song she penned for her girl to the tune of Edelweiss.
Hattie I, Hattie I...
I am telling you, it was simply beautiful and still gives me chills days later.
Justin and I know we want to have kids one day, but until then, and even then,
we will continue to love the ones around us. And their parents, too.
