So I had my night in the hospital and it went very well. She did all the normal newborn stuff – waking to feed at reasonable intervals. She went back down quite easily in her cot too. I hope she does that at home!
The kids came for a pajama party before heading home for the night. P & B had some great snuggles:
Our FOUR children (!!!)
Wheeling C out of the nursery into the family room.
The kids wrestled over the baby quite a bit when we got back to the family room. They each wanted to hold her little wobbly neck. When they lay down (briefly! they didn’t sleep there!) there was a lot of negotiating of who got to be on the “face” side. It nearly gave J a heart attack.
I’m trying to imagine what C is thinking here… “Are you sure you should be letting him hold me? Is this what home is going to be like? Cause if so, I think I’ll stay with B.”
But eventually they all settled down.
