So a good friend of mine had a baby yesterday (a great reason to be glad!) I live literally 2 blocks from the hospital and she said she would have me be one of the first to visit. I have tried calling, but no answer from her or her partner. So, well, I got a group email saying mom and baby were resting a lot today. I figured that meant no visitors. Then, the facebook photos were posted by another good friend who went to visit. How does this baby thing work? Can you just drop by? Do people get invited? I am feeling sort of foolish. I don't want them to think I don't care (because I do, and am feeling sad suddenly that I may have missed my chance to visit.) I have ZERO friends who have had babies, at least in the last 10+, and then, I think I only went to see one in the hospital and I was 19 years old then and it was my BFF from elementary school and she was single and alone, so it was just me and her mom... totally different scenario. I am feeling awful right now. They had told me to come when the baby was born, and I am afraid I missed my chance... it's 6:30 pm now.
