On Sunday, October 26, we got the go ahead to take Hannah home. I was so excited. We ate breakfast and then left for the hospital. Chris finished Hannah's feeding while I signed the papers and packed up all our stuff. It was wonderful walking out of the hospital and putting Hannah in the car to come home.
All the girls, together at last.
Our whole family
Bekah was so excited to see her little sister. We had to let her look at Hannah while we were still in the driveway.
Papa, Nana and Hannah
One of the sweet ladies from church that was helping watch Bekah while I was on bed rest brought Bekah a new dolly for when Hannah came home. This really helped her to adjust to having a new baby there (at least for the afternoon). She loved having a doll with her own paci, bottle, bib and blanket.
Bekah loves her Uncle Kevin.
Uncle Kevin couldn't wait to come over and see his new niece.
I love this picture.
It is so nice not having to drive to the hospital a couple times a day. Now I have the ultimate task of keeping Hannah happy, warm and feed 24/7. She is so small that it is hard to keep her warm, especially at night. We had to turn up our heat and bundle her up so much. She is eating well most of the time, though we do have to really encourage her sometimes. I love being able to snuggle with her and kiss her all throughout the day.
Bekah is being very helpful and sweet with Hannah. She really loves having her sister her when she can hold her and kiss her. She has had several meltdowns though. There has been so much change in the last 3 months and I think having someone taking her parents attention is the last straw. We are trying to give her extra love and attention to help her get though this part of her life. It'll be neat to see how God works in our family as we grow.
