gina’s baby

Mar 8, 2006 | Life in Progress

Gina had her baby today! They named the little guy Ian – such a fantastic name. She called while i was in the ER working on a rather depressing case, and the good news just fully lifted me out of my current reality and sent me spinning into a series of “oh my gods!”. after hearing about the entire birthing experience in detail (no pain meds – go gina!), i realized how funny it is that the most profound, wonderful, life-changing experience a woman can have is actually quite messy! and how appropriate. life is messy. it’s a messy, complicated and simple at the same time, confusing, surprising, crazy, spectacularly messy life. she and baby are doing great. and i just can’t wait to meet him and see gina being a mom.

when we hung up the phone i had a mixture of feelings that caught me by surprise. happy tears, sad that i couldn’t be there, and just a general hard to explain feeling that everything is changing. we’re growing up. it seems like just last week we were meeting one another for the first time in 7th grade, second period, Mrs. Durant’s Life Science class. and now, 19 years later and a lifetime of unforgettable freindship, life has taken gina to motherhood . and i just want to be there!

Sending much love,

    Please pass my congrats along to Gina, and I’ll do the same when I can email her from home! Kelly, I know what you mean. The last few years of everyone getting married has been one thing, but now that the babies are coming, it definitely makes me feel like we’re getting older.
