I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it is to be home. The culmination of the weeks stress and emotions was overwhelming and on top of that it was a bit of a challenge getting there. A two hour drive quickly turned into 3.5 hours. An accident on the highway had us exiting completely in order to reroute. Not what I was expecting for our first drive with Lucy. I was irritated beyond measure and Lucy's first feeding outside the hospital was in the back seat of Josh's car...which then made her less than thrilled to be put back in the car seat. The kids were so excited waiting for us to arrive. Josh's mom and friends had come over to decorate the basement with a bunch of welcome home stuff and had also coordinated with Jack and Ellie's teachers to have their whole class make cards. It was so sweet!
The hall is lined with cards from school friends...and paper snow flakes (Eleanor's favorite craft right now)
even the bassinet and Ellie's doll took part.
