Our First Day Home

Our first night at home from the hospital went pretty well!

We got home around 6:00 from the hospital. We picked up Brooklynn from the sitter's on our way home. My mom was already home with Autumn. It is amazing how much help it is having Mom home, even though she doesn't feel like she's doing too much... it's a lot more than she knows!

It is amazing how much sleep you can get when you aren't constantly being woken up by nurses to get poked and prodded all the time.

Caroline slept from 9:00 (ish) until 3:00!  Holy sleep, Batman!

Of course I kept waking up to check on her, but mostly my sleep was pretty good too!

This morning I realized I needed some "necessities" from the store, so I sent Ron out to get them.

Can I just say, sending a man to get maxi pads at the store, alone, is probably one of the most comical sights to see at the store. The conversation lasted for probably 10 minutes, just to figure out what color pads they were, the stripe on the package, the length, the thickness, the

I keep laughing in my head.

But that's what husbands are for the day after you get home from the hospital after you have just pushed life out of you, right?  snicker, snicker

As for Caroline?  She slept all. day. long. She really likes sleeping on her side. I can't say I blame her, it's my favorite way to sleep too.

She barely ate yesterday. She would go 4-6 hours without eating. I even tried waking her up and nothing was waking that girl up. She was, apparently, pretty exhausted.  I mean, being a 2 day old baby is hard work!

And can I just say? My boobs are killing me!  From her lack of eating, they are the size of cantaloupes. No lie. And as hard as cantaloupes. Luckily, baby girl woke up this morning starving and ate for probably a good hour. Relief at last!


  1. LOL! Great post! Especially the part about the pads! Caroline looks like a little angel. So glad she is sleeping well and finally ate. You need to reduce the size of those cantaloupes!

  2. You made the most beautiful precious little baby! Look at her!
