There are two little things I appreciate about Ellie being home that I'll share. There's about a million things I appreciate, but these are two biggies.
One: Wireless. Holding a baby attached to a bunch of wires was difficult. She got tangled. I was afraid of messing with her PICC line. Sometimes, picking her up would make the monitors go crazy. Now, I can hold my baby.
Two: Dinner and Lunch. Matt and I ate with Ellie in the room. If she cried, we could have gone to her. She didn't cry, though, because she was in her swing, which I think is her favorite "new" (er, borrowed) toy. She has been in it for the past hour, wide awake since 4:25 am, and after two bottles and breastfeeding, I cut her off. I was hungry, so I came downstairs, put the very awake Little Miss in the swing, and now we are both heavy eyed and hanging out.
And now, because words do not do justice to the joy of having our baby home:
