First off, I have to say thank you for all the comments about the baby’s arrival. Never has a child been so welcomed. I have made a point to read her a few comments every day, just so she knows how lucky she is. I’m pretty sure she does.
We’ve been home now for a couple of days, and while I am tired and not entirely sure what day it is today (Friday? Saturday?) I am also incredibly happy, and pretty much content to just stare at her twenty-four seven. So far we’ve had one night where she slept hardly at all, and another where she slept straight through, so I have no idea what THAT means. I’m just grateful for sleep now, however I can get it.
Meanwhile, my mom is also home from the hospital, which is fabulous. And while someday I think it will be a funny story that we were both in the same hospital, one floor between us, while all this was happening, right now it’s just a little too close, still. Suffice to say I will be happy to not step foot in any medical facility for a long time. Fingers crossed!
