"Where's my baby?"

Three words that should never be uttered out of a mother's mouth, lol. This morning, I arrived at Elisa's room to find all the curtains closed, lights off and room EMPTY. I stepped in the room and one of our favorite nurses was following me and the first thing I said was "where's my baby?" Her response was "Oh, I don't know." In her defense, she wasn't Elisa's nurse today so it wasn't her job to keep track of her, lol. After a few panic stricken seconds, I realized that Elisa was actually in the room, just on the floor in a bouncy chair, lol. And doing fine. And playing with her hands. It was just those initial seconds of seeing an empty room and wondering what the heck happened to my baby and why she wasn't in her room.

Just had to share! :)

Oh my gosh! I know that feeling, they moved him from one room to another (an upgrade we found out later) but those seconds of panic are awful! great it was that she was in a chair! Thats really good!
