After five days in the hospital, we were finally allowed to go home on Wednesday. Your dad and I were ready to leave the hospital, but also a bit intimidated at the idea of being home alone without all of the support at the hospital. But mostly we were excited to get you home and begin our new life with you in earnest. The process of checking out of the hospital took forever. But finally we got you into your car seat and headed home. We unpacked everything and walked you around the house, introducing you to each room. I was so excited to show you your nursery and we saved that room for last. We also introduced you to your doggy brothers, who were doubly excited because they hadn’t seen us in a few days and because they could smell you, their new sister!
