I love this picture that Mom took of Sharon and I at the hospital with the Christmas tree in the background!
We "nested" at this hospital on Wednesday night. Nesting means that we stayed the whole night with Sharon & did all of her cares and feedings by ourselves. If we needed help we could ask our nurse, but everything went fine. We didn't get much sleep because the "beds" we had were just chairs that fold out into beds and they were extremely uncomfortable. We got a nice surprise just before going to the hospital on Wednesday when we were told that we would be taking her home on Thursday instead of Friday. The picture above shows us getting all ready for Sharon's first car ride as we left the hospital.
We had to go up to Kingman the same day so that we could get her to the pediatrician on Friday and also pick up her meds. It's amazing how much better things are when you have a few hours of sleep.
Sharon likes this sling that I got with a gift card. She fell asleep quickly once I got her all settled into it. I sure am glad that my mom was able to come to Kingman with us, because she was a lifesaver! Sharon loves her grandma!
So she is officially 6 lbs 7 oz naked, and in good health according to the ped. We are so grateful to have her home & are quickly settling in to parenthood. She is such a little dumpling & is such a good baby. Even when she is fussy, once you fix the problem she settles right down. Hopefully things continue to go that way!
Thank you for all of your love, support and prayers through this whole journey. I know that the prayers have been heard and answered in Sharon's behalf & that all the little miracles we experienced were due to those prayers. We are so thankful that she's been allowed to stay & that we have such a precious gift in our lives!
