Bringing Home Baby
That trip home was the scariest, most exhilarating trip of my life. Every car that passed made me cringe and as we got closer to home, I kept thinking finally. It didn't help that I knew my dad and Erin would be getting to my house just hours after we got home. I was so excited to show off my baby to my family, and I knew they were excited to meet him. At the same time I knew how hard this was going to be without my mom there....but that is sometimes how life goes (and a whole other post all on its own!)
While waiting for my dad and Erin, Chuck and I enjoyed our first moments home together. We feed him, burped and changed diapers. I was on cloud nine (I think Chuck could have done without the diapers!!) Then I got the phone call "we're here!" I jumped up (as fast as someone who just had a c-section could) and waited...here they came. Now, for you who don't know me, my dad NEVER had boys....he was the lucky father to 3 girls and a beautiful granddaughter, Micah was the first boy!! My dad finally had his fishing buddy, and they were friends from the start.
My first couple hours at home were going great....and they were only getting better!
