I Want A Baby!
My roommate fig gave birth to a healthy tiny baby boy 5 days ago. She was admitted to the hospital two nights before the actual birth because the baby's heart beat was really weak.
Everything is fine now. I have been sleeping over with her at the hospital. Taking turns with her husband. If he has work then i sleep over, on his off days he sleeps over.
She named him Abdullah, after her dad and his. Two birds one stone! When i first saw him i felt like i had given birth. That he was my baby. I was sitting next to fig on her bed still groggy from the operation holding 3abood and telling him ana mama ana mama
and fig telling me to shut up.
Shes at her mamas house now, she called me yesterday crying telling me she hasn't slept at all. I offered to come take 3abood off of her hands so she can doze off, but her mom (who was up all night too) told me she can handle it.
Then she sent me on a mission to find an electric breast pump.
You would think its an easy enough request
but your wrong my darlings
details tomorrow in the next post.
Going to hang out with baby 3abood now.
