A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. -Eda J. Le Shan
Everyone was crowded around the window of the nursery as the nurse brought in the baby. She didn't have a name yet, so her name tag read, Baby Girl Mitchell. Everyone's heart melted when she was placed in her plastic incubator. She was a preemie, but, according to the nurses, there was nothing wrong with her lungs or her heart. In fact, she was the loudest preemie they had ever delivered. She wouldn't have to stay in the hospital longer than Camille would, something that made everyone happy.
"She is so adorable," Stephanie said, on the verge of tears.
The baby was small and pink, wrapped up in a baby blanket that was covered teddy bears. She had on a pink hat that covered up her short brown hair. Her eyes were open and she was looking around with her big brown eyes. She looked like a perfect mix of both of her parents. She had both of their eyes, Logans nose, Camille's lips, and she could cry just like her mother.
"I wonder what name they're going to decide on," Carlos said.
"I know that Camille really liked the name Willow, but Logan wasn't too fond of it," Jo said.
"She wanted to name her daughter afte a tree?" Kendall asked.
Jo shrugged and made faces at the baby who was now looking at everyone in front of her.
"She looks confused," Katie said.
"You did too when you were new," Mama Knight said.
A nurse walked over to the incubator and, after looking at everyone through the window, put a new nametag in the slot. Everyone scrambled to read it at the same time.
Kelly smiled. "Happy Birthday Lacey Willow Mitchell."
Camille was asleep when the nurse rolled Lacey's crib into the room. Logan was sitting next to her and he immediately got a smile on his face when he saw his daughter.
"I'm going to leave her in here for a little while. If you need anything just call for me," the nurse said.
Logan nodded and walked over to the crib. Lacey was awake, but yawning. He picked her up and held her close to him. It was only the second time he had been able to hold her. He felt tears of joy welling up in his eyes and he went back to the chair he had been in previously.
"Hello Lacey," he whispered softly to her.
Camille shifted in bed, her eyes opening slowly. "Did they bring her in?" she asked.
"Yes. She looks just like her mommy," Logan said, looking down at Lacey and then up at Camille.
"We're going to have to change around her nursery. It's blue."
"Well then daddy is going to have to go home and make it pink."
Camille smiled. "We'll be good parents, right?"
"Of course we will," Logan said. "There's no doubt in my mind."
