Molly's Home!

going_home_dress_small.jpgMolly's finally home with us! We spent an exhausting night "rooming-in" at the hospital with Molly to practice caring for her. The nurses didn't say, but they were grading us to make sure we fed and changed her on schedule. I've gotta say waking every three hours to care for an infant is no small feat. On behalf of all children everywhere, let me thank all the moms out there.

Molly dipped a little in temperature during our stay, so our only real drama was making sure she warmed to an acceptable level, which she did. We had lots of parting information given by a parade of caring people, all of which was lost when we got that little girl in the car. The whole world truly looks different when your little one is out in it with you.

We arrived without event, and Denise commenced to feed and burp, while I and mother-in-law set about taking care of the ten-thousand things we still haven't gotten done in preparation for Princess' premiere, like washing all the new clothes and cleaning every surface. I realized that, for the first time, I actually wanted to shave so I could touch Molly against my face. Talk about profound, life-altering changes. :)

I'm sure we'll get little sleep tonight watching her. But it's worth it.
