First of all, thanks for so many good wishes and comments in the last few days! You guys are great! It's amazing to know that not only have we had the support of our wonderful friends and family in the last few days, but that we also have all these virtual friends cheering for us. Really, I appreciate it.
So then, we are now home. Thank god. We got discharged this morning around 10 am, and I was SO happy to go home. The hospital was really busy, so we were unable to stay in a private room the past two nights, and let's just say that other new parents and their newborns aren't easy to "room" with, so I don't feel like I've had much sleep in several days. Plus, I just really wanted to be home and settled, so it's good to be here.
Scooter got introduced to Norah today too, and he was a little wild at first, but then he settled down some. I'm sure there will be a transition period for him, just as there is for us, as we all adjust to the major addition to our lives.
There are many more stories and things to share, and I'll get to them eventually, but the last thing I want to say today is how thankful I am to have a husband like Jerry. He has seriously been such a great dad so far, and I don't know what I'd do without him: He has done everything short of breastfeeding Norah; truly, he has been doing SO much, and I'd be lost if I didn't have him. Norah is very lucky to have such an engaged, participant father, and I am SO, SO lucky to have such a wonderful husband.
Now, enough with the sappy stuff, here's what you really came here for, some pics:
