|No more hospital!!!|
|She looks so little!|
Nurse Blake walked us out to the car, and we were off! Elsie didn't like being strapped into the car seat, but once we started moving, she did fine. Her eyes went big as she took in the sights, smells, and sounds of being outside. 5 months old, and she's never been outdoors.
When we got home, we were greeted by pink and purple balloons and a welcome home sign, courtesy of Grandpa Joel and Grandma Ann. Other welcome home gifts included an incredibly delicious chocolate cake, a diaper cake (not as delicious as chocolate but more practical and really cute!), sweet individualized onesies, and to my great surprise, a Mamaroo chair. Also, the morning after Elsie came home, we looked out the window and saw that we had been "heart attacked" by the fabulous Faudree family. I forgot to take pictures before we had to hurry and grab the hearts before the sprinklers went off, but Evje thought it was so exciting and we felt so loved. What sweet and thoughtful gifts; we are so blessed to have such wonderful and generous people in our lives.
I've got a lot more to say on life at home, but it's getting late, and I've got a hot date with the breast pump before I can go to bed. So I'll save it for another post. In the meantime, enjoy some more pictures and have yourself a wonderful day.
