Home with our baby

by purelytwins

We left the hospital yesterday afternoon. Both Gary and I were so excited to get home!!! It was hard leaving the wonderful nurses at the hospital as they were sooooo helpful. But I am feeling more and more confident on my own 🙂  Luckily, I have a great home support team!

Madison did great in the car. She slept the whole way home.

And the meet and greet with her big brother, Jax, went wonderful. I was so eager for that moment! Jax was not sure what to think. He is getting used to having a little sister 🙂

I look forward in seeing their bond grow as she gets bigger and they can play more together.

I am not sleeping much, which is to be expected as a new mom. I am trying to get some rest when Madison rests, but I just cannot take my eyes off of her. I always feel so nervous not watching her. I know these first time nerves will ease down.

My mom and Michelle have been here helping out with everything…especially taking care of Jax and the house, while Gary and I have all our focus on Madison! A nice stress relief knowing I have family around for help. Although mom leaves soon…very sad about that, but I know we need to find our routine.

Life over here is wonderful…peaceful…exciting…a little nerve-wracking….but my baby girl is here and my life has completely changed for the better.

How lovely to watch your videos and read your website. You have all inspired goodness in my life. I feel a spark, a spark to be happier.
In four weeks I will be watching my granddaughter. And I want to use cloth diapers which is how I came to your website.
I am truly thankful for all you are doing!
Blessings and goodness, Therese
