home home home.

home is so fucking great. home with our baby.

so much to post about in the coming days:

  1. what it feels like to finally have this baby we worked so hard for
  2. the hotel hospital where we stayed
  3. the biliruben space alien bed
  4. being the not breastfeeding mom
  5. how amazing S was, in a long, intense and without drugs, birth (we almost have twinsies birth stories which is weird)
  6. littleo’s birthday. she was born on WTF’s babywhodied’s (little charlotte’s) due date. crazy times. i mean, wow.
  7. choosing littleo’s name.
  8. boobs

thank you to WTF, my lovely technologically challenged (you so are) friend, who posted an update for me on her blog the other day. i will also say that WTF should really post about what the experience was like for her. i can only imagine it was beyond intense for many, many reasons. do it.
oh, and the MIL final episode. that’s coming too.

i am super tired now, but maybe i will have some posting mojo when i’m up in the middle of the night.
i missed you guys! i couldn’t blog at the hotel hospital, dammit, and it was killing me.

    Looking forward to stories!!! Home was never so sweet as when you return from the hospital is it!?

  21. complicatedmama Says:

    so you like the nickname?! i wont be offended if something better comes up. and heyyyy i could’ve and would’ve posted for you (once i figured out that i needed to sign myself out first) but i couldnt find the password in your email. (it wasnt there right in front of me, was it?)

    heartiest of congratulations to you four. i am SO SO SO happy that i got to be there. WOW. really. what an experience.

    and littleo SO SO SO SO SO does not feel in ANY way shape or form anything more than my dear, dear friends’ baby and only occasionally the product of RM’s donation. i was and am curious about how she looks but besides that she feels only like YOURS YOURS YOURS!! no mistaking that. how does it feel to you? i am guessing she feels like all yours. yours on the way home form the hospital, yours when she came out after 28 hours, yours when its time to wash the breast pump parts for the millionth time, yours when she poops that long-awaited poop….

    we are thrilled for you guys. take lots of pictures and get that skype set up (in your spare time i know) so we can see the little darling all the time!

    I’m so thrilled for you all and the newest member of your family. And yes, the phototherapy lights are a hoot. Did she get to wear the stylish shades too? All 3 of my boys were under the lights many times.
    Take care of yourselves, and enjoy!
