D7.

A few hours after Lachlan's arrival we were moved to our new "home".

D7- the room where we spent our first few days as mamma and daddy to our beautiful baby boy!

Over the those three days, D7 became the place of a lot of firsts. His first bath and first sleep. My first post pregnancy shower and first post pregnancy meal. D7 housed our first visitors and was the place where we made our first phone calls to family and friends.

Brothers met there for the first time...

I got thinking about D7 the other day. How many other people had those very same firsts in that very same room? How many people had experienced their first night as parents hugged by those four walls?

How many smiles and tears and excited people had been there before? How many sleepless nights and anxious thoughts had D7 seen??

Although those three nights and three days are kind of a big blur to me now, I'll never forget D7 and the joy that came in that little hospital room.
