Home from the Hospital

We are finally home from the Hospital. Even though we were only there for 3 days, I was so anxious to get home with our little guy. I keep thinking to myself, "I can't believe this is my little baby boy!?" It's surreal! And I just have to say that although I was devastatedwhen I found out Owen was breech and I'd have to have a c-section (yes, I did have an emotional breakdown...I even surprised myself) the second Owen was in my arms, I no longer cared how he got here! I was just so happy he was in my arms and a healthy baby. The feeling you get when the nurse brings you your baby for the first time is absolutely amazing!!

We got home yesterday at about 6:30pm. Our first night was sleepless as expected (well, Brett slept just fine). Thank goodness my mom is here to help for the week, otherwise I wouldn't have survived the night.

Here is a picture of Owen all bundled up and ready to leave the hospital....

Grandma Debbie and Owen......

Brett is a pro at the burrito wrap.....
But Owen usually finds a way to get his hands out and by his face......
My two favorite boys........


Life is great! We are blessed to have this sweet baby in our home and part of our family!

He is so adorable, Kristy! I hope you guys adjust well and that you get some rest.

I had to laugh out loud when you said that Brett slept fine. Funny how that works, huh. They think the baby sleeps through the night from day 1!

Hope recovery goes fast!

He is so cute! Enjoy every second. They grow way too fast. Ella seems to always be able to get her hands out of the burrito wrap too. That's funny. I'm glad you were able to go home. Please let me know if you need any meals.
