So I am sitting here on Sunday afternoon with a quiet house (my husband and son made a quick trip to Home Depot)....waiting for baby Gunn....listening to the new Coldplay CD I recently downloaded off ITunes. It is making think back to 3 years ago when I delivered my son....as I have mentioned in older posts, music is a huge part of my life. So when I packed my bags for the hospital the 1st time, I made SURE to have my music with me. At that time we didn't have an IPod so we just brought some CDs and player. And who did I bring with me? Of course Coldplay & Ray Lamontagne.

So not only is Coldplay significant to me because of my hospital experience BUT I had tickets to see them LIVE a month after my son was born! Now fortunately I was able to nurse Nick, so my 1st "mommy task" was to make sure he would take a bottle by a month old so I could let my sister-in-law babysit while I attended the concert with my husband and some friends...I was not letting anything stop me from missing this concert, lol. Well it all worked out....the concert was fantastic....and I came home refreshed and rejuvenated!

So now 3 years later, I have a new Coldplay CD to listen to as I deliver #2...and this time I have the IPod loaded with all kinds of music. It is packed in my bag and ready to go with me along with our new speakers.

I was showing off my pictures of Anna all day at work today. Everyone said how beautiful she is and couldn't believe she was only a few hours old in the pictures. Grace and Ryan can't wait to meet their cousin!!
