Coming Home

Well, we've been home for 4 or so days now and things are starting to settle into a routine. Elizabeth is an angel at night letting me sleep for long stretches at a time. I so appreciate that! We came home from the hospital Wednesday before Brent had to get to his first day of classes for this semester. We would have been able to leave much earlier in the day, but we were waiting for the pediatrician to release Elizabeth. It was a little boring just hanging out waiting for him to get there. But after we spoke with him, we were on our way.

So far I haven't spent more than an hour or so alone with both girls. That sounds a little crazy, but it's been so nice. I'm grateful to my mom for playing with Sammi and giving her lots and lots of attention (and for getting her to take naps each day!)

My body is feeling better. I'm glad tomorrow is a holiday and we have Brent all day long. But, I think I'm ready to face the new week (although I'm still looking forward to my mom's help.) Thanks for all the encouragement and love!
